San Jose Sharks center Dominic Moore says he missed playoff games this postseason because his wife has a rare form of liver cancer. Moore issued a statement Tuesday through the Sharks to explain his absence from San Jose's final two playoff games in April against St. Louis. He says his wife, Katie, was diagnosed with the disease late in the season.
