Manny Malhotra, Andrew Alberts in, Dan Hamhuis out for Canucks

VANCOUVER — Canucks [1] third-line center Manny Malhotra will return to the team’s lineup for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup [2] 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 [3] and getting cross-checked by David Krejci [4] in the second period. Former Boston College [5] and Bruins defenseman Andrew Alberts will take Hamhuis’ spot in the lineup.
