Samuelsson to miss Game 6
For the second time in these playoffs, Mikael Samuelsson will not be available to the Vancouver Canucks as the series moves to Nashville for Game 6 on Monday night.
VANCOUVER – For the second time in these playoffs, Mikael Samuelsson will not be available to the Vancouver Canucks as the series moves to Nashville for Game 6 on Monday night.

Samuelsson did not play in Game 1 of the Chicago series, and coach Alain Vigneault announced after Saturday night's 4-3 loss that the 34-year-old Swede would not travel to Tennessee with the team on Sunday afternoon. He is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

The former Detroit Red Wings forward was initially sidelined with the injury on March 18 in a 3-1 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes. He was forced to miss six games.
Quote of the Day

It was pretty unbelievable...I think (my family in France) is pretty much in front of the TV right now. I don't think I have to wake them up.
