Vancouver Canucks' Eddie Lack to Start Until Team is Eliminated: Report

It’s the Eddie Lack Show in Vancouver and it will be for the foreseeable future.

According to TSN’s Farhan Lalji, the Canucks have no plans to use backup Jacob Markstrom until the team is mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.

Since the Vancouver Canucks traded goaltender Roberto Luongo, Lack has started in all ten games.

The Canucks play again Monday night against the Tampa Bay Lighting. This will be the team’s first back-to-back after the Olympics and would have been the perfect opportunity for Markstrom to make his first start.

The Canucks have two more back-to-backs this season. Next week, on March 26 and 27, against the Minnesota Wild and Colorado Avalanche on the road. Then, they play their final two games of the season on April 12 on the road against the Edmonton Oilers and April 13 at home versus the Calgary Flames.
