Short Notes From LeBrun

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, - Interesting to see how many people viewed home ice swinging from the Montreal Canadiens to the Tampa Bay Lightning as the determining factor in picking the Lightning over the Habs in seven games, instead of likely picking Montreal had it held on to home ice. There's no question the Bell Centre is an X factor when it comes to the postseason,...

But then, Paul Byron stepped in with an uncalled for push from behind on Daniel Sedin...

Vancouver Canucks: Daniel Sedin Injury (Video)

Vancouver Canucks forward Daniel Sedin was injured on this play today. Sedin had to be helped off of the ice. I didn't think the hit was malicious or dirty. If Sedin is gone for any length of time it would have a huge impact on the Canucks who are God-awful right now. The Canucks are in the Wild Card race, they're tied with Dallas and Winnipeg for the final Wild Card spot.
