Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Earns win in poor showing

Nilsson let in three goals on 13 shots Saturday against Los Angeles.

Nilsson is expected to compete with Jacob Markstrom for the starting job in Vancouver, but Markstrom's lights-out performance Saturday (19 saves, 19 shots) proves this will be an uphill battle for Nilsson. Even if he ends up in a backup role, he's still likely to earn around 20 starts. The Canucks play their next preseason game Sunday against the Golden Knights.
