KEY GAME INFORMATION
VANCOUVER:
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Like it or not, there is a new culture in Vancouver.
Whether the new atmosphere surrounding the Canucks leads the franchise to its long-awaited first Stanley Cup championship remains to be seen.
But coach John Tortorella is sure going to try.
Following five division championships, two Presidents trophies, for the league's most points, and a Stanley Cup finals appearance in seven years under Alain Vigneault, Vancouver brass determined the Canucks needed a tougher voice. So Vigneault, the franchise leader in wins, was fired May 22 and replaced by John Tortorella, himself fired by the New York Rangers May 29.
Tortorella comes with an edge - he can be hard on the media, and often calls out his players in press conferences - but he wins, and that's what Vancouver needs. He won a Stanley Cup in 2004 behind Tampa Bay's bench, and took the Rangers to the Eastern Conference finals in 2012.
SAN JOSE: SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Preparations for the upcoming campaign started early for the San Jose Sharks when they retooled their roster before last season's trade deadline.
A strong finish last spring, followed by a playoff run that ended in Game 7 of the second round, proved to the Sharks that those changes that made the team faster and more aggressive worked.
Now they hope that new identity carries over to this season and is just the right tonic to help one of the league's top regular-season teams over the past decade take that next step and make it to the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history.

*Canucks-Sharks Preview* ========================

By ALAN FERGUSON STATS Writer

Vancouver (0-0-0) at San Jose (0-0-0), 10:00 p.m. EDT

Having continued to fall short in their quest for a first Stanley Cup, the Vancouver Canucks are hoping that John Tortorella can finally lead them to that long-awaited title.

The Cup-winning coach begins his tenure with the Canucks in Thursday night's visit to the San Jose Sharks, who also are hoping this is finally the season they capture their first championship.

Vancouver won 313 regular-season games and six Northwest Division titles in its seven campaigns under Alain Vigneault, but a second straight opening-round playoff defeat - a four-game sweep to the Sharks - was enough for the franchise to make a change. In an interesting twist, the Canucks and Rangers essentially swapped coaches after Tortorella was fired by New York.

Tortorella has 410 wins to his credit and something else the Canucks desire, the experience of winning a Cup with Tampa Bay in 2004.

"I'm anxious - a good anxious. You want to get going," Tortorella told the league's website. "I want to see what the team looks like. I want to see how they react in different situations. ... We're playing for the real stuff here."

The new coach has a group of players who came within one win of realizing that goal in 2011 against Boston, but his success could hinge on the performance of one in particular, goaltender Roberto Luongo.

Luongo's exit from the franchise looked imminent with Cory Schneider getting the majority of the starts last season. It was Schneider, though, who was shipped to New Jersey for a first-round draft pick in June after Vancouver failed again to find a taker for the high-priced Luongo.

"Given what's happened over the last little while it's nice to get a fresh start here and know you're the No. 1 again and just play hockey," Luongo said.

Luongo's goals-against average has steadily risen since a career-best 2.11 in 2010-11 and his 2.56 mark last season nearly matched his highest in seven seasons in Vancouver. His .907 save percentage was his worst since his 1999-00 rookie season with the New York Islanders.

"I'm totally confident. He's a pro. He's in good shape. He's played very well in camp," Tortorella said.

Luongo did not face the Sharks in the 2012-13 regular season, but lost both starts against them in the playoffs.

San Jose, however, is coming off another playoff disappointment of its own after falling in seven games to Los Angeles in the Western Conference semifinals. The Sharks have won 10 playoff series during their streak of nine consecutive appearances - the last five under Todd McLellan - but have yet to reach the Cup finals.

Unlike Vancouver's No. 1 goaltender, Antti Niemi is coming off one of his best seasons. The Finnish netminder posted a career-low 2.16 GAA while going 24-12-6 during the lockout-shortened campaign and was named a Vezina Trophy finalist.

The Sharks will also have a full season with a roster that emphasizes speedier and more physical play than puck possession. To help, they acquired forward Tyler Kennedy from Pittsburgh and signed 2012 first-round draft pick Tomas Hertl.

"Our coaches are pretty excited to continue where we left off last year, and we have a clear view of how we want to play," general manager Doug Wilson told the league's website. "You know, that north/south attacking game. The players that we've added certainly fit that mold."

In addition to its playoff sweep of the Canucks, the Sharks won all three regular-season meetings in 2012-13.

Niemi started in all seven of those games and posted a 1.76 GAA.
