Lineup changes

The Canucks are expected to make one lineup change tonight, with Tanner Glass replacing Michael Grabner. As we know, Scott Parse will replace the injured Rich Clune on the Kings’ fourth line. Here’s what Terry Murray said today about his fourth line, and his plans for possibly shortening his bench or making changes during the game.

MURRAY: “I want to play four lines. We have our fourth line set up, right now, in a way that gives me some flexibility to play them more, play them against some of the better lines and then, if necessary, make some changes.”

(on possible in-game changes…)
MURRAY: “That kind of dictates itself, as the game goes along. We need to get some stuff going in the offensive zone. I think it helps to have that fourth line set up the way it is. They’re capable. All of the players on that line are offensive-minded players, can score and have scored a lot in the past. So if we have the four lines going, great, but if it’s necessary to move some people around, the option is there.”
