Game Day: Canucks at Canadiens

The Canucks continue their road trip tonight against Les Habs. Hopefully, yesterday's Roberto Luongo and Taylor Pyatt scares were just that, scares, and both suit up tonight.

Here are more from today's MSM:
  • Roberto Luongo got hit with a puck in practice yesterday. After much panic from Canuckland, it turns out he's okay. Whew. - Jason Botchford (Vancouver Province), Iain MacIntyre (Vancouver Sun)
  • Taylor Pyatt apparently broke his thumb on Saturday night after a Jeff O'Neill slash. After initially expecting to miss 2-4 weeks (and much panic from Tracy), he may, in fact, be able to put it in a splint and play anyway. - Jason Botchford (Vancouver Province)
  • It turns out the giggling and joking Alain Vigneault we see in interviews is a front. - Jason Botchford (Vancouver Province)
  • After a scare caused by a life-threatening blood infection, Taylor Bouck hopes to receive some good news from his doctors today. - Ben Kuzma (Vancouver Province)
  • It doesn't happen often but I love it when our scouting staff outfoxes another team's scouting staff, especially one as successful as Detroit's. - Ed Willes (Vancouver Province)
  • If he continues the way he's been playing this season, Kevin Bieksa should soon be a household name and won't have to worry about anyone on the media side mispronouncing (or misspelling his name. That or Cole and Neale just stop calling Canucks ganes. - Iain MacIntyre (Vancouver Sun)
  • For sure, the folks from Bieksa's hometown, Grimsby, ON and nearby Hamilton, ON don't mispronounce his name. - John Kernaghan (Hamilton Spectator)
