Canucks, Wild each determined to grab crucial Game 3 win

The Vancouver Canucks and Minnesota Wild each have tasted victory through the first two games of their best-of-five Western Conference qualifying series.

Both sides will try to take control of the series when they meet for Game 3 on Thursday afternoon in Edmonton.

The Wild won the series opener 3-0 on Sunday. The Canucks bounced back with a 4-3 win on Tuesday, though they saw their forward lines further thinned by injuries.
