Canucks may be without Salo in Game 7 @NHLdotcom

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - It appears the Vancouver Canucks will have to play Game 7 against Chicago on Tuesday night without injured defenseman Sami Salo.

Head coach Alain Vigneault wouldn't confirm the absence of Salo, who left four shifts into Game 6 on Sunday with an undisclosed injury, saying only that he was day-to-day. But several Canucks players indicated the veteran defender wasn t playing.

Defenseman Kevin Bieksa said that Vancouver is obviously a better team with Salo but "we plug in whoever we plug in and we play the same way."
