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's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
