Canucks/Blues Game Day #2

Nothing new to report from either team as the Canucks and Blues prepare for Game 2 tonight at GM Place. Both teams are expected to ice the same line-ups as they did in Vancouver's 2-1 win on Wedensday night.

Many of the players were asked about the "trash talking element" of Game 1 and how much a factor that could be moving forward in the series. All really much-ado-about-nothing in the heat of playoff hockey. Both teams are preaching better execution 5-on-5 and more shots on target when working on the power play.

Tonight's is the 300th career playoff game in St. Louis Blues history. They haven't lost back-to-back games in regulation since Jan. 13.

Here are the expected line-ups for both teams:


D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Burrows
Demitra - Sundin - Kesler
Raymond - Wellwood - Bernier
Hordichuk - Johnson - Rypien

Mitchell - Salo
Ohlund - Edler
Bieksa - O'Brien



Andy McDonald - David Backes - Brad Boyes
T.J. Oshie - Patrik Berglund - David Perron
Brad Winchester - Keith Tkachuk - Dan Hinote
Alex Steen - Jay McClement - B.J. Crombeen

Barret Jackman - Roman Polak
Jeff Woywitka - Jay McKee
Carlo Colaiacovo - Mike Weaver

Chris Mason
Ben Bishop
