-- The Blackhawks made one more lineup change prior to Game 3 against Vancouver Sunday night at United Center as center Jake Dowell
replaced Ryan Johnson
. Dowell will start the game centering the fourth line between Fernando Pisani
and the other new addition, John Scott
Dowell played in 9:24 in Game 1, registering a hit and one shot on goal. Pisani replaced him in the lineup for Game 2.
Johnson played in each of the first two games against the Canucks, averaging 8:53 of ice time with zero shots on goal and one hit. He won six of 10 faceoffs. Johnson played in 33 regular season games after signing with the club on Dec. 17. He had 1 goal and 5 assists and won 63.1 percent of his faceoffs (197-of-312).
As expected, Vancouver will have Mikael Samuelsson
and Raffi Torres
in the lineup Sunday night. Samuelsson sat out Game 2 with an undisclosed illness and Torres hasn't played yet in the series due to a four-game suspension that dated back to the regular season.
Samuelsson had an assist in Game 1.
and Aaron Rome
will not play for Vancouver.
