Ehrhoff will suit up against his former squad.
Raycroft and Machesney will be in goal, I wouldn't be shocked if Raycroft got the full 60.
Sounds like Shirokov will draw back in, and Shorthouse on the Team said he should see some time with the Sedins.
Lineups could appear as:
D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Shirokov
Parrish - Scatchard - Burrows
Desbiens - Rypien - Hansen
Labrie - Bliznak - Walsky
Mitchell - Sauve
Ehrhoff - Ellington
O'Brien - Baumgartner
San Jose is NOT dressing Heatley, Thornton or Setoguchi. Sounds like they will ice Pavelski-Marleau-Clowe. With Raycroft in net and three non-NHL D-men, not to mention only 3 forwards with "guaranteed" spots (Sedins, Burrows), I see the Canucks being in a bit of trouble tonight. We'll see.
Also, Petrovicky's tryout is over, as he's out 4-6 weeks with an MCL injury. http://canucks.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=499011
Hodgson is likely to play Saturday vs. Edmonton.
