Canucks will have slightly new look

The Kings are expected to go with the same units tonight, but the Vancouver Canucks had a new look in practice yesterday. Daniel and Henrik Sedin remained with David Booth, but the Canucks went with a second line of Alexandre Burrows, Ryan Kesler and Maxim Lapierre, a trio that has inspired some interesting nicknames among the Vancouver media. Spreading things out, with Jannik Hansen on the third line and Mason Raymond on the fourth line, perhaps makes the Canucks a bit tougher to defend overall, but these teams have already played eight games against each other this season, so there are no secrets anymore.
