Notes from Thursday

- Roberto Luongo will not start against the Bruins tonight. Backup, Dany Sabourin will get the call in net. It is the fifth game for Sabourin (0-2-0, 3.43 GAA, .867 save percentage). The former AHL goaltender of the year does not have much NHL experience, playing just one game for the Penguins last season and 4 for the Flames in the 03-04 campaign. Bruins lucked out.
- Very disappointing season for the captain Marcus Nasland, only 12 goals 11 assists in 34 games. He has not scored a goal in the past 9 games.
- Canucks top defenseman Sami Salo will play tonight, he has 4 goals 10 assists with a team high plus 6 on the season. He had missed the last 6 games with neck and shoulder injuries.
- Canucks defenseman Yannick Trembley is out with flu for tonights game.
- Journeyman defenseman Rory Fitzpatrick made the cover of USA Today. He is currently receiving more votes than the top defensemen in the league, Chris Pronger and Nicklas Lidstrom. That is sad, he does not deserve to make an allstar especially since he has only played 19 games, recording 0 goals and 0 assists. Allstar worthy numbers right there. WHAT A JOKE.
- P.J. Axelsson skated with assistant coach Doug Houda, but will probably not play until after New Years.
- Look for Lewis to continue to mix and match the 4th line players onto the top 3 lines. Chistov will get shifts with both the top 2 lines, where as Hoggan and Stastny will get looks on the 3rd line and also on the PK unit.
