Gibson will be the starting netminder for Thursday night's showdown in Vancouver, NHL.com reports.

Gibson's November was a roller-coaster ride, as he managed to look brilliant in some games, but was absolutely horrendous in others on his way to a 4-4-1 record for the month. He's coming off a strong 39-save win against the Canadiens on Tuesday and will look to keep it up against a Canucks team that ranks 27th in the league with 2.26 goals per game.
