Tyler Toffoli has made quite the impression on his new teammates by recording three goals and five points in his first three games since being acquired from Los Angeles last week.

Ottawa, which was an active seller at Monday’s trade deadline, struggled with its chemistry the following day in a 3-2 setback at Nashville.

Toffoli looks to continue his strong surge on Thursday when the Vancouver Canucks visit the Ottawa Senators, who have lost four in a row (0-3-1).
Toffoli scored 1:35 into overtime on Tuesday as Vancouver improved to 4-1-1 in its past six contests by opening a four-game trek with a 4-3 victory over Montreal. He has now collected nine points (seven goals, two assists) in his last five games overall.
Elias Pettersson scored on the power play to highlight his team’s four-goal first period on Dec. 3 as Vancouver posted its fourth straight victory over Ottawa with a 5-2 win. The reigning Calder Trophy recipient leads the Canucks with 25 goals, although just two have come in the last eight games.
J.T. Miller set up Pettersson’s tally versus the Senators and also assisted on captain Bo Horvat’s power-play goal on Tuesday to extend his point streak to three games (two goals, four assists).
Canucks G Thatcher Demko turned aside 40 shots in the previous meeting with the Senators.
Thatcher Demko should be the starting goalie in the game tonight. His stats up to this point on the season are: 11-6-2 W-L | 3.03 GAA | 0.906 SV% | 0 SO
Bobby Ryan may not have dented the scoresheet in Tuesday’s loss, but his return to the ice served as a type of victory for the 32-year-old in his first game since entering the NHL/NHLPA player assistance program on Nov. 20.
Brady Tkachuk is experiencing some highs and lows as well, as the 20-year-old followed up a sizzling seven-point stretch by being held off the scoresheet in each of the last four games.
On the backend, Ottawa D Thomas Chabot scored a goal on Tuesday, marking just his fourth point in February.
Craig Anderson should be the starting goalie in the game tonight. His stats up to this point on the season are: 9-15-2 W-L | 3.21 GAA | 0.901 SV% | 0 SO
