Vancouver Canucks players forced to hail cabs to rink after team bus breaks down

WASHINGTON - Things just seem to go from bad to worse for the Vancouver Canucks.

On Friday, the team's bus broke down on the way to the Verizon Center, where the Canucks were scheduled to face the Washington Capitals.

That forced the Canucks players to hail cabs in order to get to the arena.

Earlier in the day, the Canucks learned that forward Ryan Kesler is out for two weeks with a knee injury sustained in the club's 3-2 shootout win over Winnipeg on Wednesday.

That snapped a woeful seven-game road skid for Vancouver (30-28-10), which has lost four straight and nine-of-10 against Washington (30-27-10).

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
