News: Miller gave up four goals on 29 shots before being pulled midway through the third period of Monday's loss to the Ducks.
Impact: Miller had a string of solid starts coming into the contest, but things got off to a rocky start after allowing a goal just 79 seconds in and it didn't get much better from there. The 35-year-old has been inconsistent for much of the season and currently sports middling rate stats with a .910 save percentage and 2.57 GAA.
News: Markstrom will likely start Tuesday's game against the Kings, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Impact: The Canucks will be playing their second game in as many days Tuesday, so Markstom will get the start in order to give regular starter Ryan Miller a rest. If Markstrom does start Tuesday he will square off against a Kings squad that has not tallied more than three goals in a game since Nov. 14.
News: Virtanen's upper-body injury does not appear serious, but he will likely be held out of Tuesday's game against the Kings, Sportsnet's Dan Murphy reports.
Impact: It's not clear what type of injury Virtanen is dealing with, but he will likely be given at least one game off to recover. Assuming he sits out Tuesday, Virtanen's next chance to play will come Thursday against the Stars.
News: Miller will start between the pipes Monday against the Ducks.
Impact: Miller has given up two goals in each of his last two starts. On the season he has compiled a 7-7-6 record with 2.48 GAA and a .913 save percentage. The Ducks have been struggling this season as reflected by their current fifth place standing in the Pacific Division, so the matchup should give Miller a decent opportunity to earn a win.
News: Miller is expected to receive the start in goal for Monday's game with Anaheim, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Impact: Head coach Willie Desjardins refused to name a starter for Monday's game, but it appears as though Miller will be his man after being the first goalie off the ice during morning skate. Miller has been a very average goaltender this year, but is coming off two strong performances, allowing two goals in each.
