Minnesota Wild v Vancouver Canucks

The NHL returns on Saturday, August 1st, with their qualifying round and round-robin play. The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in a restart that will feature 24 teams competing for the Stanley Cup. The top four teams in each conference are competing in round-robin play to finalize the top four seeds. The next eight teams are competing in five-game seeded play to earn a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Vancouver Canucks and Minnesota Wild will face off in Edmonton starting Sunday. The Canucks finished the abbreviated regular season with 78 points on a 36-27-6 record, which was good for the 7th seed. The Wild finished the abbreviated regular season with 77 points on a 35-27-7 record, which was good for the 10th seed.

The Canucks were relatively healthy when the league suspended play. They’ll get back reserve forward Michael Ferland. They lost their exhibition game 4-1 as Jakob Markstrom struggled in goal. The Wild are trying to sort out their goalie situation, with Alex Stalock and Devan Dubnyk splitting time in the team’s 3-2 exhibition loss to Colorado. Stalock started and gave up three goals on 17 shots, while Dubnyk stopped all 12 shots he faced.

Below is a full rundown of the Canucks-Wild series and how to watch it. The NBC games are all available at NBCSports.com/live.
