Vancouver Canucks center Brad Richardson, who has been holding down a third-line role for the Canucks in their opening round series against the Calgary Flames since returning from a nagging foot injury, will not be in the lineup for Tuesday night's Game 4, according to a report from TSN's Farhan Lalji.
The veteran center was not out for the warmup skate, and it seems likely that Linden Vey will replace him - and not Alex Burrows as was reported earlier in the day. Meanwhile it looks like Sven Baertschi will play (UPDATE: or maybe it'll be Brandon McMillan with the twins?).

Willie Desjardins is loyal to his players. Sometimes to a fault, as he himself has admitted.
With Alex Burrows out of the Canucks lineup for Game 4 with what's reported to be a broken rib injury sustained a Tuesday's game-day skate, it was assumed that recently recalled forward Sven Baertschi might draw into the Canucks lineup. That won't be the case though.
Instead Linden Vey is expected to make his playoff debut in Game 4, according to Sportsnet's John Shannon.

About half way through the third period of game three, I finally figured it out. I finally realized what Willie Desjardins was up to. And it's not a good sign.
There's been much talk about Desjardins' line deployment, especially the lack of ice time for the Sedin line, and I think now I know why...

The Vancouver Canucks lineup will definitely change this evening after forward Alex Burrows sustained an upper-body injury while taking part in this morning's pre-game skate.
In a statement the Canucks confirmed Burrows' injury, said that he was sent to hospital for precautionary reasons and confirmed that the first liner will not play in Game 4 on Tuesday night against the Flames.
