CALGARY, Alberta (Ticker) -- Johan Hedberg is expected to start in nets for the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night when they take on the Calgary Flames in Game Four of the Western Conference quarterfinals.

Hedberg, who was acquired from Pittsburgh during the offseason, was forced into action Sunday when starter Dan Cloutier went down with a lower body injury. Cloutier got hurt after making a save on Oleg Saprykin with 30 seconds left in the first period.

Cloutier was evaluated by doctors in Vancouver on Monday.

Hedberg, who helped Pittsburgh make the Eastern Conference finals as a rookie in 2001, allowed Chris Simon to score just 64 seconds into the second period. But he finished with 19 saves, including 10 in the third period to improve his career postseason record to 10-9.

In addition to getting a solid effort from their backup goaltender, the Canucks continued to excel on the power play. Just 66 seconds after Simon beat Hedberg, captain Markus Naslund scored Vancouver's sixth power-play goal in 15 chances.

WHO'S HOT:

Vancouver - Naslund had three power-play assists in the series opener and has three power-play goals in the series.

Calgary - Jordan Leopold has three assists in his first three playoff games.

WHO'S NOT:

Vancouver - Brent Sopel has no points and a minus-3 rating in the series.

Calgary - Shean Donovan has no points in the series after scoring just two goals in the last 31 regular-season games.

STREAKS: Vancouver is 8-0-2 in its last 10 games at the Pengrowth Saddledome.

HISTORY: Calgary has not won a home playoff game since 1995.

LEADERS:

Vancouver - Naslund two goals; Naslund, three assists.

Calgary - Chris Simon, two goals; Leopold, three assists.

INJURIES:

Vancouver - Cloutier (lower body); Mats Lindgren (back); Magnus Arvedson (knee); Bryan Allen (shoulder).

Calgary - Steve Reinprecht (shoulder); Dave Lowry (abdominal); Stephane Yelle (lower body); Dean McAmmond (back).back
