GAME OF THE WEEK

Vancouver at Minnesota, Thursday, 5 p.m.

This will be a showdown between the top teams in the Northwest Division. The first-place Canucks are led by high-scoring forwards Markus Naslund and Todd Bertuzzi. Vancouver defenseman Ed Jovanovski will have his work cut out, trying to slow Minnesota's Marian Gaborik, who leads the Wild in goals and points.
