Christopher Higgins will be the man in front of the net on the power play.

The Canucks are 26th overall on the power play and have scored only 19 times with the man advantage this season. Coach John Tortorella was not happy when discussing the power play, or the lack of power in it, with his squad on Friday and moved Higgins to the first unit. "Can someone get in front of the net?" Tortorella screamed during Friday's practice. "That's the problem with our power play. We do all these nice passes and do F-all in the blue." We shall see if Higgins can help out the anemic Canucks power play as he will replace Daniel Sedin up front with Sedin moving to the point and Dan Hamhuis moving down to the second unit.
