Power play coming alive for Canucks as they face Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens and the host Vancouver Canucks return to the ice Thursday for the middle game of a three-game series that wraps up Saturday.

The Canucks head into the matchup starting to feel better about their power play. Vancouver's extra-man unit went into the Wednesday home game against the Canadiens 0-for-15 but managed three goals on six tries, a big part of the Canucks' 6-5 shootout victory.

"We know that we can be difference-makers each and every night," said Vancouver winger Brock Boeser, who had two goals, one on the power play, and added an assist. "We felt we needed to be better, even though we were getting good looks. When we got one, it just felt like the floodgates were going to open and then we got a few more. It was huge to get that going."
