Rangers Vs. Canucks Preview: Game Time, TV Coverage And More

The Canucks should get a boost with the return of Ryan Kesler to the fold as they face a winless Rangers team.

Ryan Kesler will make his season debut for a Vancouver Canucks team that was already scoring at a pretty good clip. Kesler is coming off a season in which he scored 41 goals, adding to a Canucks attack that was scoring 2.8 goals per game without him.

Kesler and the Canucks will face a New York Rangers team that has gotten off to a pretty horrible start. The Rangers are currently 0-1-2 and are scoring just 1.67 goals per game. 

The Canucks have struggled a bit on the defensive side, as Roberto Luongo has allowed at least three goals in each of his three appearances. He is stopping just .871 percent of shots.

Game Date/Time: Tuesday, October 19, 10:00 P.M. ET

Venue:  Rogers Arena, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

TV: TSN (national - Canada), MSG (local - New York)

Odds: Rangers +165 to win; Canucks -150 to win.
