  • The Province’s Ben Kuzma implies tonight will be Roberto Luongo vs. Craig Anderson.  Makes sense as not only is it a divisional game but a rivalry so both teams will need their number one.  Anderson is 12-5-3 with a 2.40 GAA, .927 SV% and 2 shutouts in 20 games.  By contrast, Luongo is 7-7-0 with a 2.69 GAA and .906 SV% with 1 shutout in 15 games.
