VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — The Vancouver Canucks will have a new second line Sunday when they attempt to stay alive in the Stanley Cup playoffs against the Los Angeles Kings.

Alex Burrows, Ryan Kesler and Max Lapierre — dubbed by one pundit as the Three Mouthketeers because of their outspoken ways on the ice — want their actions to speak louder than words in Game 5 of the Western Conference quarterfinal series.

The Canucks, down 3-1 in the best-of-seven series, face another must-win situation after beating the Kings 3-1 in Los Angeles on Wednesday night. Vancouver, first overall in the NHL for the second straight season, is attempting to become the fourth team in Stanley Cup history — 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs, 1975 New York Islanders and 2010 Philadelphia Flyers — to rally from a 3-0 deficit.
