  • Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Suffers 4-1 defeat in Winnipeg

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/18/18) Nilsson stopped 28 of 32 shots in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Jets.

    Nilsson kept his team in this one for a while, but Winnipeg pulled away with a trio of third-period tallies. Overall, two of the four goals against Nilsson came on the power play. This was Nilsson's fourth consecutive start as he's begun to pull away from Jacob Markstrom for Vancouver's goaltending job, and this slip-up in an extremely tough matchup is unlikely to reflect poorly on his playing time moving forward.

    Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Tabbed for Thursday's start

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/18/18) Nilsson will be in goal on the road against the Jets on Thursday.

    Nilsson will be making his fourth consecutive start after winning his previous three outings with a 1.67 GAA and .943 save percentage. Until the Swede stumbles, he likely will continue to get the nod over Jacob Markstrom -- at least until the Canucks' back-to-back versus Vegas and Arizona on Oct. 24 and 25, respectively.

    Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Bags third straight win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/16/18) Nilsson made 26 saves in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win against Pittsburgh.

    The win gives Nilsson three for the year, as he's yet to taste defeat early in the campaign. While it's still too early to celebrate too loudly, the Swedish netminder has looked very sharp thus far, posting a .943 save percentage to go along with a 1.67 goals against average. He could get the start Thursday in Winnipeg. Right now, he is the best option in net for the Canucks.

    Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Starting in Pittsburgh

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/16/18) Nilsson will guard the goal in Tuesday's road game against the Penguins.

    Nilsson has played well this season, earning two wins in two appearances while posting an impressive 1.51 GAA and .950 save percentage over that span. The 28-year-old netminder will look to keep rolling and remain unbeaten in a tough road matchup with a Penguins club that's averaging 4.00 goals per game at home this campaign, 10th in the NHL.

    Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Continues sharp play

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/13/18) Nilsson made 24 saves in a 3-2 win over Florida on Saturday night.

    Nilsson has looked sharp this season. He has allowed just three goals in two games and won them both. The goaltending battle in Vancouver could come down to who's hot and who's not. Nilsson is hot.
