VANCOUVER — Canucks  third-line center Manny Malhotra will return to the team’s lineup for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup  finals, as he is officially listed as active for the team. Malhotra has been out since March after getting hit in the eye with a puck vs. the Avalanche. The move makes Alexandre Bolduc a healthy scratch for the game.
Defenseman Dan Hamhuis will not play for Vancouver, as he left Game 1 after hip-checking Milan Lucic  and getting cross-checked by David Krejci  in the second period. Former Boston College  and Bruins defenseman Andrew Alberts will take Hamhuis’ spot in the lineup.
