Update: X-Rays on Alexandre Burrows' foot came back negative after the Flames game but there is still discomfort there. He will have a CT scan done today to make sure there is no structural damage. If there is a problem there, or if there is too much pain to put a skate on and skate Burrows will not play tonight. (The Province). If he cannot play the Canucks will play a forward short due to salary cap restrictions.
