So, I watched game one last night, for the first time...and it was obvious that Sundin was somewhere trailing on nearly every single play.
At some point in the 3rd period, Sundin came off the bench and sprinted to the other end, creating a terrific fore check and fooling the Blues a bit. But, once they broke his fore check, Sundin went back to gliding on his skates. I muttered to myself, 'He's got to be hurt.'
And then, I read this from Mark Spector at Sportsnet...
The rumours of serious hip problems have followed Sundin here from Toronto, where he was so much better down the stretch with a bad Leafs team last spring than he has been on a far superior Canucks roster here in Vancouver.
