Shot-blocking has Canucks on verge of ousting Wild

The Vancouver Canucks can secure a berth in next week's Stanley Cup playoffs with a victory in Game 4 of their Western Conference qualifying series with the Minnesota Wild on Friday night in Edmonton.

After getting blanked 3-0 in the opener of the best-of-five series by Wild goaltender Alex Stalock, the seventh-seeded Canucks bounced back to win two in a row. Vancouver grabbed the series lead with a 3-0 victory on Thursday afternoon in Game 3.

Jacob Markstrom earned his first career playoff shutout with 27 saves, and the Canucks killed seven power plays thanks in part to 14 blocked shots. Vancouver, which got a goal and an assist from both Brock Boeser and Elias Pettersson, finished with 22 saves in the contest.
