Eddie Lack

Canucks' Lack Traded To Carolina

News: Eddie Lack has been traded to Carolina for a 2015 third-round pick and a 2016 seventh-rounder, Chris Johnston of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: With the Hurricanes shipping out Anton Khudobin to Anaheim in a later move Saturday, Eddie Lack will join holdover Cam Ward to form Carolina's goalie tandem in 2015-16. Though Ward possesses the heftier contract and has a Stanley Cup on his resume, his performance has slid in the last few years, creating an opening for Lack to claim the No. 1 job during training camp. In 82 games with the Canucks the last two seasons, Lack has submitted roughly league-average production in the crease, posting a cumulative 2.43 GAA, .917 save percentage, and six shutouts.

Canucks' Lack On Bench For Game 5

News: Eddie Lack will be passed over for the start in Thursday's Game 5 against the Flames in favor of Ryan Miller, Jim Jamieson of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Miller's long-term absence due to a knee issue resulted in Eddie Lack opening the first round as the Canucks' lead goaltender, but he squandered his job security after going 1-3 with a 3.03 GAA and .886 save percentage over the first four games of the series. With the Canucks facing elimination the rest of the way, look for Miller to receive any subsequent starts if the team is able to come away with the Game 5 win in Vancouver.

Canucks' Lack Yanked In Game 4

News: Eddie Lack lasted just one period in Game 4 on Tuesday against the Flames, giving up three goals on seven shots before being pulled.
Analysis: That's consecutive bad games for Eddie Lack, made worse by Ryan Miller's perfect 15 saves on 15 shots in relief. The upstart Flames are now ahead 3-1 in the series, and it's likely that Miller draws the start in Game 5 back in Vancouver.

Canucks Sticking With Lack For Game 4

News: Eddie Lack will be between the pipes for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Flames, the Vancouver Province's Ben Kuzma reports.
Analysis: Eddie Lack gave up four goals in Sunday's Game 3 to put the Canucks in a 2-1 series hole, but after the netminder was solid in the first two contests, he still appears to have the backing of coach Willie Desjardins. He'll need some more offensive support from the struggling top line to even the series Tuesday, while also ensuring that Desjardins won't be tempted to turn to Ryan Miller if the Canucks end up facing elimination in their next game.

Canucks' Lack Gives Up Four Goals In Game 3 Loss

News: Eddie Lack gave up four goals on 28 shots in Sunday's Game 3 loss to the Flames.
Analysis: While it wasn't the best night for Eddie Lack, the 27-year-old was excellent in Games 1 and 2 and is a huge reason why Vancouver is even in the playoffs in the first place. While it's possible the team decides to turn to veteran Ryan Miller, expect Lack, who recorded a .921 save percentage in the regular season, to get the call once again Tuesday in Game 4.

Eddie Lack

Canucks Stick With Lack

News: Eddie Lack is slated to start Sunday's game against the Flames, the Canucks' official site reports.
Analysis: Eddie Lack stopped 22 of 23 shots in Friday's win over Calgary to help the Canucks even their playoff series with the Flames at 1-1. Through the first two games overall, Lack has stopped 50 of the 53 Calgary shots that he has faced.

Eddie Lack

Canucks' Lack Stops 22 In Win

News: Eddie Lack stopped 22 of 23 shots in Friday's Game 2 win over the Flames.
Analysis: The Canucks gave Eddie Lack an early 2-0 lead in the first period that the goalie would never relinquish, earning the game's first star for his efforts. Lack's strong performance in Game 2 to even the series will likely continue to make him coach Willie Desjardins preferred option in goal over Ryan Miller until further notice.

Eddie Lack

Canucks' Lack Starting In Goal

News: Eddie Lack will get the start in goal Friday against the Flames, Irfaan Gaffar of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Eddie Lack took the loss in Wednesday's Game 1, despite allowing only two goals on 30 shots. He'll get another chance in Game 2 before the series shifts to Calgary.

4/16/2015

Eddie Lack, G, CAR

Eddie Lack

Canucks' Lack Loses In Game 1

News: Eddie Lack turned aside 28 of 30 shots in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Flames in Game 1.
Analysis: Eddie Lack looked great heading into the third, having stopped all 20 shots sent his way and enjoying a 1-0 lead. However, as they've done all the season, the pesky Flames made another successful third-period comeback, capped off by Kris Russell's goal from the point with 30 seconds left. Look for another strong performance from Lack in Game 2, as the Canucks will surely not want to head to Calgary and play in front of the "C of Red" down 2-0 in the series.

Eddie Lack

Canucks' Turn To Lack In Game 1

News: Coach Willie Desjardins confirmed that Eddie Lack will start Wednesday's game against the Flames, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: The Canucks' goaltending plans beyond Game 1 have not yet been mapped out, though obviously a strong effort in Wednesday's playoff opener at home would boost Eddie Lack's chances of holding on to the assignment in Friday's Game 2. Lack finished off the regular season with a shutout of the Coyotes last week, giving him a 18-13-4 record, 2.45 GAA, and .921 save percentage entering the playoffs.

Canucks' Lack Makes 28 Stops For Shutout

News: Eddie Lack posted his second shutout of the year Thursday, stopping all 28 shots the Coyotes sent his way in a 5-0 victory.
Analysis: That's two terrific outings in a row for Eddie Lack, albeit against a choking Kings team and a cellar-dwelling Coyotes squad. It seems likely that the Canucks will get Ryan Miller a tuneup start Saturday against the Oilers, so this probably marks the end of Lack's regular season, leaving him with an 18-13-4 record, .921 save percentage and 2.45 GAA. Those rate stats are better than Miller's, even if the wins and losses haven't worked out the same way for Lack.

Canucks Confirm Lack To Start Thursday

News: Coach Willie Desjardins confirmed Eddie Lack will start in goal Thursday against the Coyotes, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Ryan Miller will serve as the backup goalie in his first game back from a knee injury that cost him six weeks of action. While Desjardins hasn't indicated that Miller's return will permanently displace Eddie Lack as the No. 1 goalie during the playoffs, it certainly wouldn't surprise if that ended up being the result. Lack has been a capable fill-in for Miller with a 17-13-4 record, 2.52 GAA, and a .919 save percentage on the season, but those numbers probably aren't eye-popping enough to entrench him as the Canucks' top option in the net.

Eddie Lack

Canucks' Lack Likely In Net Thursday

News: Eddie Lack is likely to receive the start in goal Thursday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: The Canucks activated Ryan Miller (knee) from injured reserve earlier Thursday and will have him available for the game, but it sounds like coach Willie Desjardins will use the goalie in a backup capacity in an effort to ease him back into action. As a result, Eddie Lack figures to make what could be his final start of the regular season, as the Canucks would likely turn to Miller for Saturday's finale against the Oilers. With a 2.52 GAA and .919 save percentage over 40 outings this season, Lack's performance has stacked up favorably with Miller's, but the latter's larger contract and greater experience in high-pressure games may force Lack to assume a No. 2 role during the playoffs.

Canucks' Lack Outdoes Quick And The Kings

News: Eddie Lack was terrific Monday, turning aside 36 of 37 shots before prevailing 2-1 in the shootout over Los Angeles.
Analysis: Both goalies practically stood on their head in what felt like a playoff game, as Jonathan Quick made 37 saves of his own at the other end of the rink. Eddie Lack improved to 17-13-4 with a 2.52 GAA and .919 save percentage on the year and has been quite sturdy in relief of Ryan Miller (knee), who is nearing a return after sitting out nearly two months with the injury.

Eddie Lack

Canucks' Leaf Starting Monday

News: Eddie Lack will start Monday's game against the Kings, The Province reports.
Analysis: Ryan Miller (knee) hopes to return before the end of the regular season, but Eddie Lack will apparently get at least one more start. Following Monday's contest, the Canucks close out their season with games against the Coyotes (Thurs.) and Oilers (Sat.).

Canucks' Lack Gives Up Five In Loss

News: Eddie Lack gave up five goals on 36 shots in Saturday afternoon's 5-4 loss to the Jets.
Analysis: A three-goal first by Winnipeg but Eddie Lack and the Canucks behind early, but they clawed back in what was a wild, back-and-forth affair. Lack has been quite serviceable in relief of Ryan Miller (knee) over the last six weeks, but has sputtered recently in giving up 20 goals over his last six games. With news of Miller potentially returning next week for a few tune-up games before the playoffs, Lack's time between the pipes in Van City appears to be running out, so those in daily leagues vying for a title will want to adjust their netminding assets accordingly.

Canucks' Lack Earns Saturday Start

News: Eddie Lack will be in the crease for Saturday's matinee tilt with the Jets.
Analysis: Eddie Lack has given up three or four goals in four of his last five starts, making him something of a dicey activation heading into Saturday. The Canucks still appear to be on solid ground for a playoff spot, but Lack's run as the Canucks' No. 1 goalie could come to an end with the regular season. Ryan Miller returned to practice Friday and appears to be on track to play during the postseason, and by virtue of his larger contract, he figures to inherit the starting job back once he becomes healthy.

Lack, Canucks Stuck With Loss Despite 35 Stops

News: Eddie Lack made 35 saves on 38 shots, but took a 3-1 loss to Chicago on Thursday.
Analysis: Despite a solid night's work, Eddie Lack's two-game winning streak came to an end. Nonetheless, he's been a steadying presence in net for the Canucks lately, with save marks of .900 or over in 12 of his last 15 outings. However, Ryan Miller (knee) is returning to practice with the team on Friday, so Lack's run could be coming to an end soon.

Eddie Lack

Canucks' Lack Confirmed For Thursday

News: Eddie Lack has been confirmed as the starter in goal for Thursday's game against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: As expected, Eddie Lack will get the nod for the 21st time in the Canucks' 22 games. He's won both of his previous two career appearances against the Blackhawks, posting a 2.85 GAA and .910 save percentage in those matches.

Canucks Expected To Go With Lack On Thursday

News: Eddie Lack is expected to make the start in goal Thursday against the Blackhawks, Jon Abbott of TSN 1040 reports.
Analysis: Eddie Lack is lined up for a sixth straight start after leading the Canucks to wins in three of his previous five appearances. His ratios have begun to deflate a bit over his last few outings, but with a 16-11-4 record, 2.48 GAA, and .919 save percentage on the season, he still looks to be a solid middle-tier fantasy option in goal.

Eddie Lack

Lack, Canucks Outlast Preds

News: Eddie Lack made 34 saves on 38 shots and came away with 5-4 shootout victory over Nashville on Tuesday.
Analysis: It's not the most impressive outing, but Eddie Lack was under fire, facing 13 more shots than Pekka Rinne had to on the other end. It still adds up to his second consecutive win, and he's 6-2-1 over his last nine starts, providing the Canucks with reliable netminding work in the continued absence of Ryan Miller.

Eddie Lack

Canucks Go With Lack For Second Consecutive Night

News: Eddie Lack will start for the second straight night Tuesday against the Predators.
Analysis: A road matchup against one of the league's best teams in Nashville might seem daunting to most goaltenders, but Eddie Lack has thrived in such circumstances this season. In his 18 outings away from Rogers Arena this season, Lack is 7-4-2 with a 2.40 GAA and .926 save percentage. He bettered those road numbers with a win Monday in St. Louis, during which he turned away 23 of 24 shot attempts.

Canucks' Lack Allows Just One In Win

News: Eddie Lack turned aside 23 of 24 shots in Monday's 4-1 win over the Blues.
Analysis: Eddie Lack wasn't as heavily tested as he's been in his last few outings, but the effort was good enough to bounce back from a pair of losses in his previous two starts (allowing seven goals in that span) nonetheless. The 27-year-old has proved to be a reliable replacement with Ryan Miller likely out for the remainder of the regular season as he nurses a knee injury, so he makes for a decent fantasy play whenever he gets the starting nod.

3/30/2015

Eddie Lack

Canucks To Start Lack On Monday

News: Eddie Lack is slated to start Monday's game against the Blues, Dan Murphy of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Eddie Lack, who will look to help the Canucks bounce back from back-to-back losses to Colorado and Dallas, will take aim Monday at a Blues' squad that has just one win over the team's last five contests.

Canucks' Lack Gives Up Four Goals In OT Loss

News: Eddie Lack gave up four goals on 40 shots in Saturday's overtime loss to the Stars.
Analysis: A decent outing for Eddie Lack, who has now lost two straight games, surrendering seven goals in that span. The 27-year-old falls to 14-11-4 on the season, but still owns an impressive .919 save percentage and 2.48 GAA. Ryan Miller (knee) appears to be out for the remainder of the regular season, so the Canucks playoff hopes will be riding on Lack. Keep him rolling, as everything is on the line and he should be at his best.
