Michael Chaput played with Daniel and Henrik Sedin Saturday.

Coach Willie Desjardins switched up the lines Saturday and Chaput found himself with the Sedins while Markus Granlund moved up to the Bo Horvat, Sven Baertschi line. You read that correctly as the Horvat line is the top line in Vancouver right now and even on the power play where the Sedins have been demoted to the second unit. Nevertheless, the Canucks still could not score against Edmonton so it could be back to the drawing board for the Canucks.
