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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
