  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Drops result in overtime

    Demko stopped 36 of 40 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Penguins.

    The Canucks saw leads of 2-0 and 3-2 slip away before Erik Karlsson won it for the Penguins in overtime. Demko has lost four of his last five outings, giving up 16 goals in that span. He's at 31-12-2 with a 2.50 GAA and a .917 save percentage through 45 contests this season. The Canucks' current homestand ends Thursday against the struggling Kings, which could give Demko a chance to get back on track if he gets the start. However, he has not started more than four games in a row this season, and he's been between the pipes for the Canucks' last four contests.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Set to face Bruins

    Demko is expected to start at home against Boston on Saturday, Brendan Batchelor of Sportsnet 650 reports.

    The Bruins are 34-12-12 this season, including 16-5-7 on the road, so they'll be a challenging adversary for Demko, especially given the goaltender's recent struggles. The netminder has lost his last three contests while allowing 10 goals on 84 shots (.881 save percentage). Demko is still having a strong campaign overall, though, posting a 30-12-1 record, 2.48 GAA and .917 save percentage through 43 appearances.

  • Canucks' Thatcher Demko: Tough night in Boston

    Boston scored two shorthanded goals in the first period, giving Linus Ullmark all the support he would need in the other crease.
