Liveblogging the preseason: Canucks vs. Oilers

Firstly, we received a few comments during the last couple of games that the livestream for the game wasn’t working properly. The Canucks have since advised us that the NHL has resolved the issues. If you want to watch the online stream of tonight’s game, you can go to:

Second, here is the Canucks’ anticipated lineup for tonight’s game (via Elliott Pap, Vancouver Sun):

Mikael Samulesson – Cody Hodgson – Alex Bolduc
Darcy Hordichuk – Ryan Kesler – Jannik Hansen
Michael Grabner – Dave Scatchard – Mark Parrish
Tanner Glass – Ryan Johnson – Matt Pope

The following defensemen will suit up: Sami Salo, Alex Edler, Kevin Bieksa, Brad Lukowich, Nathan McIver and Evan Oberg.

Roberto Luongo is scheduled to play the entire game and will be backed up by Daren Machesney.

  13. Chris – It’s a combination of both. Most of the regular cast were unavailable, but also, we changed the hashtag that got imported to one that was specific to the game. What we’re aiming for at the end of the day is to set up a liveblog with a good balance of game analysis and conversation. Like Alain Vigneault, we’re still experimenting in the preseason, and hopefully, we’ll get the balance we’re looking for by next week.
