Canucks Off To The Tank

It will be a full flight down to southern California for the Canucks this afternoon as both squads embark on their two-day weekend trip to play the San Jose Sharks tonight and Anaheim Ducks on Sunday.

A bit of line juggling as has taken place in preparation for today's game in the Shark Tank. Here's who the Canucks will dress tonight.


9 Pyatt
13 Brown
17 Kesler
20 Cowan
21 Raymond
27 Krog
29 Jaffray
36 Hansen
37 Rypien
38 Demitra
42 Wellwood
63 Labrie


2 Ohlund
5 Krajcek
23 Edler
43 Heshka
44 Baumgartner
45 McIver
48 Rahimi


1 Luongo
35 Schneider

This will be the pre-season debut for both Rick Rypien and Daniel Rahimi, who are the only two players on the current roster who have yet to dress in the exhibition campaign. Luongo will likely play two of the three periods.

Here's who the Sharks are expected to dress at home against Vancouver:


11 Marcel Goc
12 Patrick Marleau
13 Jeff Friesen
19 Joe Thorton
25 Mike Grier
29 Ryan Clowe
39 Thomas Plihal
40 Riley Armstrong
47 Tom Cavanagh
48 Steve Zalewski
59 Brad Staubitz
64 Jamie McGinn


3 Douglas Murray
5 Rob Blake
44 Marc-Edouard Vlasic
55 Mike Moore
60 Jason Demers
65 Derek Joslin


1 Tomas Greiss
33 Brian Boucher

Should be a good test for the Canucks to keep their undefeated streak alive in the pre-season. The Sharks are going with a relatively completely different line-up as to what they put on the ice at home Friday night in a 5-2 win over Anaheim Ducks.

Will post an update after the game this evening.....
