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

Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy. This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player and this is the place to do it.

— Zac Rinaldo to the Flyers website on signing a two-year contract extension with Philadelphia
