Canucks look to finish strong in Calgary

CALGARY, AB (NEWS1130) – The Vancouver Canucks are in Calgary for the final game of the regular season and for the first time all season the team’s top six defenceman will all be in the line-up.

Dan Hamhuis returns after missing six games with a concussion. He’ll join Alex Edler, Sami Salo, Christian Ehrhoff, Keith Ballard and Kevin Bieksa on the blueline.

The Canucks will need to dress a seventh defenceman.  But, Aaron Rome will play as a forward on the fourth line due to a four-game suspension to Raffi Torres.

Cory Schneider gets the start in goal for Vancouver.  This marks his 25th appearance this season which makes him eligible to have his name on the Jennings Trophy.  This is awarded to the goalie or goaltending duo that allows the fewest goals over the course of the regular season.

Game time is 7 p.m.
