Jeff Tambellini is in the running for a spot in Vancouver's top-six forward group to start the season with Alex Burrows out with a shoulder injury. Brendan Morrison, Cody Hodgson and Sergei Shirokov are also vying for the position, but no one has stood out yet in the competition as far as coach Alain Vigneault is concerned. "Nobody has come out and grabbed it and said, 'Coach, I'm the guy,' who is going to go out there whether it be with the twins or whether it's moving [Mikael] Samuelsson with the twins and playing somebody else there [on the second line]," Vigneault said Monday. "Nobody has come out and grabbed it. There are three games in four nights [this week] and hopefully somebody is going to force our hand." Tambellini played well with the twins on Saturday and Hodgson will play with Ryan Kesler and Mason Raymond on Tuesday night against San Jose. http://www.vancouversun.com/sports/hockey/vancouver-canucks/Audition+Alex+Burrows+spot+Sedin+line+yield+clear+winner/3587982/story.html
