Canucks expected lineup
VANCOUVER -- Alexandre Burrows needed four stitches to close the cut on his left hand, but will be back on the top line against Columbus tonight, leaving the other lines intact:
Defenseman Alexander Edler left Saturday's game in San Jose early after a big hit from Jamie McGinn, but was back on the ice Monday and Tuesday and also appears ready to play the Blue Jackets:
Daniel Sedin - Henrik Sedin - Alexandre Burrows
David Booth - Ryan Kesler - Chris Higgins
Cody Hodgson - Maxim Lapierre - Jannik Hansen
Aaron Volpatti - Manny Malhotra - Dale Weise
Dan Hamhuis - Kevin Bieksa
Alexander Edler - Sami Salo
Keith Ballard - Aaron Rome
Cory Schneider makes his sixth-straight start in goal, while Roberto Luongo watches a fourth consecutive game from the bench, his longest stretch as a healthy backup in six seasons in Vancouver.

Quote of the Day

Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
