Michal Neuvirth (1-1-0, .893 save percentage, 3.08 GAA) will make his second start and fourth appearance of the season as the Capitals take on Vancouver, which has won three straight and five of its last seven games. The Canucks will go with Roberto Luongo (6-3-1, .908 save percentage, 2.55 GAA) as they look to continue their winning ways in their first game home after a seven-game road trip.
