Kariya a no-go for Game 4

Tuesday, 04.21.2009 / 12:35 PM / 2009 Playoffs Conference Quarterfinals

By Larry Wigge - NHL.com Columnist

ST. LOUISPaul Kariya will not be in the lineup for the Blues Tuesday night (8 p.m. ET, CBC) when they face elimination from the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"It's a no go," Kariya said Tuesday morning. "But I'm getting closer every day."

The Blue trail the Vancouver Canucks 3-0 in the series and hop to force a Game 5 with a win tonight. Should the series advance to five games, Kariya said he would be able to play.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
