When is a second line not a second line? Sorry, it's a take on a bad joke, an old one - when is a door not a door? But the Canucks' second line, so promising a couple of months ago, has gone dormant. Ryan Kesler is trying to remember who Ryan Kesler was. Chris Higgins is playing through power-draining antibiotics. And David Booth is a mere two games back from a serious knee injury. Still, Booth's goal on Tues-day gives him six in his past 15 games - albeit with a long stretch between games 13 and 14, but it is a pace that would give him 33 goals over an 82-game schedule.
Booth demoted, then comes through
