Where Canucks Fans Go to Cry

Yesterday, the news came out that Roberto Luongo was injured in practice, struck in the throat by a Daniel Sedin puck. All indications were (I thought) that Luongo was going to be okay... but it's not looking good today. From the Globe & Mail, I just choked on this afternoon update from Grant Kerr: "Luongo's Status Remains Uncertain"
The Canucks also were uncertain of the status of No. 1 goaltender Roberto Luongo following the morning skate. Luongo wore a throat protector during the workout for the first time this season after being struck in the throat during practice Monday from a shot by Daniel Sedin.Luongo had rejected wearing a dangling throat protector beneath his goalie's mask previously because he felt uncomfortable and had problems locating pucks in his skates. Related to this articleShould Luongo be ruled out, backup Dany Sabourin would start for only the fourth time this season, sporting an 0-3 record. Luongo has been in goal for all 25 Vancouver victories.
Tonight's game against the Canadiens looks be complicated even more, given the absences of both Willie Mitchell and Taylor Pyatt due to injuries.P.S. Once Luongo recovers from this, he'd better not practice without a throat guard ever again. Shouldn't that be a condition of the Canucks' insurance on him, for godsakes? Geezus...
