NHL.com Preview:

Goalie Jacob Markstrom will make his eighth straight start Monday. He is 4-2-1 with a .927 save percentage in seven starts since Ryan Miller injured his groin Dec. 20 at the Florida Panthers. Miller backed up Markstrom in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Lightninhg on Saturday. "Jacob is playing well, and I just want to give Miller maybe a little bit more to make sure he's ready to be on top of his game," Desjardins told the Canucks website Sunday. (More)

Yahoo.com Preview:

Huberdeau and Jaromir Jagr had Sunday's goals as the Panthers won in Edmonton despite finishing with 14 shots for their lowest total in three seasons. "It was a grinder-type game and we did what we had to do to win," center Nick Bjugstad said. "We didn't necessarily play well, but you're going to have those games where you don't feel the greatest but you have to sneak them out." (More)
