Projected lineups for Canucks, Ducks
Here are the projected lineups for tonight's game between the Vancouver Canucks and Anaheim Ducks at Honda Center:

CANUCKS

Daniel Sedin - Henrik Sedin - Alexandre Burrows
Chris Higgins - Ryan Kesler - David Booth
Jannik Hansen - Cody Hodgson - Manny Malhotra
Aaron Volpatti - Maxim Lapierre - Dale Weise

Dan Hamhuis - Kevin Bieksa
Alexander Edler - Sami Salo
Keith Ballard - Aaron Rome

Roberto Luongo
Cory Schneider

Burrows pronounced himself fit to return to the lineup after a few days of treatment on his back.

"I needed a realignment kind of thing," he said. "The medical staff did a great job. I didn't think it was bad at first. But for a few days it was tough walking around and getting out of bed. Now it's nice to see it's a quick fix and back in the lineup."

Burrows hasn’t played since he was hit by Chris Stewart of St. Louis on Nov.4.

DUCKS
Bobby Ryan - Ryan Getzlaf - Corey Perry
Andrew Cogliano - Saku Koivu - Teemu Selanne
Brandon McMillan - Peter Holland - Devante Smith-Pelly
Matt Beleskey - Maxime Macenauer - Andrew Gordon

Francois Beauchemin - Cam Fowler
Lubomir Visnovsky - Toni Lydman
Luca Sbisa - Kurtis Foster

Jonas Hiller
Dan Ellis

Visa issues could delay Ben Maxwell's arrival to Anaheim. The Ducks claimed Maxwell off waivers from Winnipeg on Thursday and coach Randy Carlyle indicated that they might not see him until after the weekend.
Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
