The Canucks will be hitting the ice in St. Louis for a meeting with the Blues. In today's morning skate Rick Tocchet featured new lines and revealed Aidan McDonough's place in the line-up.

From what was observed, Dakota Joshua should be skating alongside Elias Pettersson and Andrei Kuzmenko while Anthony Beauvilier took place beside Sheldon Dries and Conor Garland. The J.T. Miller unit remained unchanged, while the 4th line featured Vitaly Kravstov, Nils Aman and Jack Studnicka.

Everything points toward the fact that Aidan McDonough's first game wasn't enough to convince Tocchet that he deserved a permanent chance on the starting line-up. Vasily Podkolzin on his end is thought to be injured even though no formal statement have been made on that case.

Defensively speaking, Jack Rathbone is most likely not playing tonight even though he scored an important goal in the team's last game. Hughes skated with Myers, Brisebois with Hronek and Bear and Burroughs were the 3rd pairing.



The Canucks will try and keep it going, they've been one of the best teams in the NHL since Tocchet came in. Can they keep it up?
