Sunday's NHL preview: Canucks versus Sharks

Sunday's playoff game involving a Canadian team:

Vancouver at San Jose, 3 p.m. ET

Canucks—Vancouver holds a 2-1 series lead, but the Canucks were plagued by lack of discipline in a 4-3 loss in Game 3. The Sharks scored on three of their 10 power-play opportunities. Defenceman Aaron Rome and Christian Ehrhoff could miss the game because of injuries suffered on Friday.

Sharks—San Jose played with a sense of desperation in Game 3 and need to find that same intensity to even the series up. Patrick Marleau has been hot for the Sharks. After going the first six games of the second round without a point, he's scored five goals in his last four games.
