VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) -  The Vancouver Canucks could have at least one of their injured veterans back in the lineup as they try to even their first round playoff series with the Los Angeles Kings.

Daniel Sedin may miss his eleventh straight game because of a concussion suffered against Chicago on March 21st, but he did skate by himself this morning before his teammates took their game day skate.

“There’s nothing new to report,” said coach Alain Vigneault after the skate, adding he couldn’t say if the team’s leading goal scorer will travel with the team to Los Angeles for game three.

There is a good chance that defenseman Keith Ballard will return to the lineup from his concussion tonight.  Ballard hasn’t played since early February and is expected to slide back on the blueline with Aaron Rome becoming a healthy scratch.  

With Byron Bitz serving a two game suspension for his hit on LA winger Kyle Clifford Wednesday, Andrew Ebbett is expected to draw in at forward and should play on the fourth line with Manny Malhotra and Zack Kassian.

The Canucks will have to watch their penalties which were a problem in Wednesday’s 4-2 loss. For the first time this year, Vancouver had eight shorthanded situation including once for an entire five minutes and they were fortunate the Kings scored only twice.

Roberto Luongo was solid in Game 1, making 34 saves. He will once again battle the Kings’ Jonathan Quick. This is the first time in nine playoff series that the Canucks have lost the first game. The Kings, meanwhile, are looking for their first series win since 2001.
