Markstrom sharp as Canucks top Predators 6-2

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Jacob Markstrom stopped 36 shots, and Elias Pettersson and J.T. Miller each had a goal and an assist to lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 6-2 win over the Nashville Predators on Monday night.

Zack MacEwen, Brandon Sutter, Jordie Benn and Jake Virtanen also scored on a night Vancouver began celebrating ”Sedin Week” to celebrate retired stars Daniel and Henrik Sedin, who will have their numbers retired on Wednesday.

”You’ve gotta come up with some timely saves,” Markstrom said. ”Today we scored a lot of goals, but when you get called on to come up and help the team you gotta step up, especially at this time of the year.”
