The Vancouver Canucks' playoff hopes appear to have taken a major blow. 

Vancouver is still awaiting the results of an MRI performed Monday, but early indications suggest Ryan Miller will miss at least a month with a significant knee injury, according to Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province.

Miller was forced from Sunday's win over the New York Islanders after being cut down in a collision with teammate Jannik Hansen

The Canucks recalled Jacob Markstrom - who's having a resurgent season with the AHL's Utica Comets - to pair with backup Eddie Lack down the stretch.
