Canucks Game Day Updates

imageSami Salo is back. Ballard and Alberts are out. (Speaking of Keith Ballard, more here.)

Henrik Sedin is not hurt, the Canucks swear. Cross their hearts, hope to die. Asked what’s wrong with him then, they insist he’s fine, but “he’s just… well…” (*crickets*) But Daniel Sedin is a finalist for the Ted Lindsay award, so that’s something.

Predators lose Steve Sullivan to injury (perhaps for the remainder of the series), and draw in Colin Wilson

“Green Man mania is sweeping Nashville and the U.S. sports world.” I can’t imagine how upsetting this must be to poor Glenn Healy.

Kevin Bieksa had some fun advice in the press briefing this morning:

“Ideally we’d like to win in as few games as possible,” he said. “But if we go the distance, like we expect, we’ll look at it as we’re the team that’s in game shape and they’ll be the team that’s over-rested. We’ll look at the positives.

“Maybe it’s a bad thing to win that quickly. I think some of the other teams should take a page out of our book and let a few games go into overtime.”

Update 12:02pm PT: Found this image here (courtesy of Kent Basky). Guess the Green Men aren’t loved by everyone. :)
