Q. Manny, can you just give us your chances or odds of playing tomorrow.
MANNY MALHOTRA: I wish I could put it into a percentage for you. Again, it’s going to be day to day. I’ll see how I feel after our morning skate and we’ll make a decision at that point.
Q. What happened after the last three days?
MANNY MALHOTRA: As I said on Saturday, it’s a day-to-day situation. From one day to the next, things have changed. Didn’t feel proper to go on the ice. So I took a couple days off.
Q. Ryan, can you just describe what you saw on this game-winning goal. Seemed to happen so fast.
RYAN KESLER: Yeah, I saw the Krejci line changing. I saw an opening to go. I saw Boychuk trying to step up on me there. I just tried to chip it by him, stayed on sides. Saw Jannik. Jannik made a great play to Raffi to bury it.
Hearing no suspension for Burrows.
Update 11:36pm PT: via the NHL—
National Hockey League Senior Vice President of Hockey Operations Mike Murphy today announced that there will be no supplemental discipline on Vancouver Canucks forward Alex Burrows.
“After reviewing the incident, including speaking with the on-ice officials, I can find no conclusive evidence that Alex Burrows intentionally bit the finger of Patrice Bergeron.”
P.S. If anyone’s interested, Chris Iorfida at CBC reports there’s apparently a good chunk of history in the NHL when it comes to biting allegations.
