UPDATE: Via @reidder, possible lines against the Sharks tonight:
- Apparently Roberto Luongo tweaked his groin in the Canucks' 4-1 win over the Ducks on the weekend. The Canucks are taking every precaution with this situation. He will miss the next 2 games. On the plus side, Eddie Lack will start against the Sharks on Wednesday. I am looking forward to seeing that!
Cody Hodgson is feeling great and will play on a line with Ryan Kesler and Mason Raymond against San Jose. Hodgson's favorite term in front of the media has been "progression" in regards to his back injury. Now he must progress with his play.
Alain Vigneault said of Shirokov: "Our people here sent him home last year with Roger (Takahashi, the Canucks' fitness coach) following up on that training regime, he should have known the areas where he needed to improve. Obviously, it's up to him to do it and he didn't do it to the extent we feel was needed." Aaand that about spells the end of Sergei Shirokov's chances of making the Canucks' roster. Cue the Krutov jokes? No? Yeah I know.
No Canuck player is on the leaderboard for preseason scoring, but we have 2 on the list for penalty minutes: Tanner Glass and Darcy Hordichuk.
