Wednesday’s NHL preview: Canucks versus Sharks

Wednesday’s playoff game involving a Canadian team:

San Jose at Vancouver, 9 p.m. ET.

Sharks—Forgive San Jose for feeling a little cheated. The Sharks gave up two goals in 79 seconds in a 3-2 loss to Vancouver in Game 1 of the Western Conference final. Getting the lead and holding onto it will be their focus in Game 2.

Canucks—Three more wins and Vancouver is in the Stanley Cup final. The emphasis now will be on goaltender Roberto Luongo, who got the win in Game 1 but made a glaring mistake that led to one of San Jose’s goals.
