The Canucks dominated all three of their games against the Ottawa Senators, picking up three straight wins and outscoring Ottawa 16-3 in the process. Braden Holtby and Thatcher Demko both looked solid in net and the offense was clicking up and down the lineup. Now Vancouver will try to carry this momentum into more difficult competition over the next six games on the road against Winnipeg, Montreal (two games), and Toronto (three games).

Vancouver and Winnipeg both have 10 points entering Saturday night’s matchup, but Winnipeg currently has three games in hand on the Canucks.
