The former goaltender Eddie Lack offered his services to the Vancouver Canucks to replace the injured Thatcher Demko in the series against the Nashville Predators.

The Canucks' organization revealed that Demko would be out week-to-week with an undisclosed injury.
Per NHL.com:
"Coach Rick Tocchet said prior to the Canucks' 4-1 loss to the Nashville Predators in Game 2 of the Western Conference First Round on Tuesday that it isn't related to the knee injury that sidelined the goalie for 14 games from March 13-April 13. Demko returned for the final two games of the regular season.

"We're going to evaluate him today on something," Tocchet said. "It wasn't the old injury and that's all I've really got for you guys.""
Without Demko, who's been one of the big reasons of the team's amazing season, the Canucks rely on veteran Casey DeSmith to defend their net against the Predators.
In game 2 of the series, DeSmith stopped 12 shots and allowed four goals. This was his second-ever playoff game in the NHL. As we get closer to game 3, the Canucks believe in him and most importantly, he believes in himself:
In a press conference, DeSmith said:
""A little bit more comfortability now with the one game out of the way. And looking forward to building on a hopefully better performance this time around for myself."
On social media, Eddie Lack, a former NHL goalie who played 143 games for the Canucks, Hurricanes, Flames and Devils between 2013 and 2019, offered his services to replace DeSmith.
Lack shared the following video:
Do you think Casey DeSmith can keep the Canucks alive until Thatcher Demko returns from his injury?
