Lineup changes possible for Canucks

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — The Canucks are wrapping up their practice at Father Bauer Rink at the University of British Columbia.

Dan Hamhuis, injured during his hip check of Milan Lucic in Game 1, didn’t practice. Hamhuis’s availability for Game 2 is in doubt because of what looked like a leg injury. Hamhuis is usually paired with Kevin Bieksa on the shutdown duo. Aaron Rome was Bieksa’s partner today.

Old friend Andrew Alberts skated on the third pairing. Alberts was a healthy scratch for Game 1.

Manny Malhotra practiced on the fourth line. Malhotra hasn’t played in the postseason because of his eye injury. Malhotra took regular shifts and could be in tomorrow’s lineup.


Here’s how the Canucks lined up in practice:

Daniel Sedin-Henrik Sedin-Alex Burrows
Chris Higgins-Ryan Kesler-Mason Raymond
Raffi Torres-Maxim Lapierre-Jannik Hansen
Jeff Tambellini-Manny Malhotra-Victor Oreskovich

Alex Edler-Sami Salo
Aaron Rome-Kevin Bieksa
Andrew Alberts-Christian Ehrhoff

Roberto Luongo
Cory Schneider
