Canucks Look for Revenge In Calgary

It's official...Cory Schneider will make his NHL debut tonight for the Canucks in Calgary as Vancouver opens up a seven-game road trip. He received word of the news before practice. Near the end of practice, Curtis Sanford took a puck in the neck under the mask off a shot from Kevin Bieksa. Scarey moment as he was on the ice for a few minutes, but he's okay and will back-up tonight.

Steve Bernier will return to the line-up tonight after missing Thursday's game with a shoulder and toe injury. He'll take the spot of Mike Brown on the line with Darcy Hordichuk and Alex Bolduc.

The Flames are likely going with same line up as their 4-3 winning squad two nights ago. Wayne Primeau will be a game time decision if he returns from the flu.

Here are the expected line-ups for tonight's game at the Pengrowth Saddledome:


D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Demitra
Pyatt - Wellwood - Raymond
Burrows - Kesler - Hansen
Hordichuk - Bolduc - Bernier

Mitchell - Bieksa
Ohlund - Salo
O'Brien - Edler



Mike Cammalleri - Matt Lombardi - Jarome Iginla
Todd Bertuzzi - Damond Langkow - Rene Bourque
Curtis Glencross - Craig Conroy - David Moss
Eric Nystrom - Brandon Prust - Andre Roy

Robyn Regher - Adrian Aucoin
Mark Giordano - Dion Phaneuf
Adam Pardy - Cory Sarich

Mikka Kiprusoff
Curtis McElinney
