from TSN,  Daniel Sedin took part in the Vancouver Canucks’ full practice Wednesday after missing 12 games with an apparent concussion. Sedin skated on the team’s top line with brother Henrik and David Booth. He also took shifts with the team’s first unit power play with Henrik, Ryan Kesler, Dan Hamhuis and Alex Edler…. After practice, Sedin said he will wait to see how he feels on Wednesday before deciding if he’ll play. He added he’ll focus on the power play and take his chances 5-on-5 because he is in as poor shape as he’s been in the past 5-6 years. a bit more on the Canucks…

Daniel Sedin elbows Dustin Brown

This has been the talk of twitter tonight, Vancouver Canucks forward Daniel Sedin elbowed Los Angles forward Dustin Brown. Don't expect the league to look at this play; there are two sets of rules in the NHL, there are one set of rules for star players like the Sedin twins and then another set of rules for the tough guys and goons. To me this seems kind of hypocritical...

West QF Game 4 Canucks vs. Kings: A call to fans

Vancouver Canucks fans wonder if a four win comeback is possible

Can they still beat the LA Kings? The numbers are daunting. Only three teams in history, out of 167 opportunities, have recovered from a three games to none deficit in the Stanley Cup finals.
