Welcome to the Nation Network’s DailyFaceoff Rundown, a twice-a-week show featuring OilersNation writer Jason Gregor and TSN insider Frank Seravalli!
The Vancouver Canucks defensive woes have been on full display this year with the club giving up the second-most goals per game to start the year.
In a year of transition on the backend, the Canucks players have struggled to give much help to either Braden Holtby, or Thatcher Demko when it comes to keeping the puck out of the net. It’s been a tough stretch here for the Canucks, and Gregor and Seravalli dove into what has been plaguing the Canucks.
