Luongo Okay; Salo Not So Much

It wasn't just the 7,006 fans at Victoria's Save On Foods Memorial Centre that went quiet after Brad Isbister's shot felled Roberto Luongo. The rest of us in Canuckland did as well.

The good news this morning is that Luongo seems okay and will be back practicing before their first preseason game. Unfortunately, the news isn't as good for Sami Salo and Trevor Linden:
Even if Luongo is okay, defenceman Sami Salo may not be.

After having his left wrist jammed on a bodycheck, Salo was sent to hospital for X-rays. He returned to the rink wearing a splint but won't know the extent of the injury until today. Teammate Trevor Linden also was unable to finish the game and is out day-to-day with a groin injury.

Salo looked despondent as he spoke about the injury, which comes after a summer spent recovering from last season's back, groin and shoulder problems.

Tonight's preseason game, against the Anaheim Ducks, starts at 7 PM at GM Place.
