Canucks Pre-Game Updates

From Grant Kerr at the Globe & Mail:
Top-four defencemen Sami Salo and Kevin Bieksa likely will miss the opening game of the Western Conference semifinal Wednesday against the Anaheim Ducks due to what the team termed flu-like symptoms.Salo took the morning skate and was tentative at best, while Bieksa was not located at the Honda Center.
I blame Texas. Those bastards. Excuse me while I go lock myself in a closet and scream. More later...Update 2:28 pm PT I just put up a post on Kukla's with all the "experts" predictions on the semi-finals. Take a look and try and find one dude who is predicting a Canucks win -- because, quite shockingly, there is one dude who believes that! Anyway, that moment of hockey media confidence set aside, we're clearly the underdogs.And about this defensemen shortage tonight, does it occur to anyone else that if Bieksa and Salo are both nursing the flu so badly they can't play tonight, that probably half the rest of the team is nursing it to a lesser degree? God, this could be a brutal opening game.
