    What I can tell you is that Ales Hemsky is going to be out (sinus infection) along with Ryan Whitney (ankle).  Not a real surprise for both guys here; Hemsky was kept out of the Minnesota game prior to Christmas with “something contagious”, and Whitney hasn’t looked quite right all season.

  • Alex Plante was called up as a result of Whitney being scratched.  Also of note:  Corey Potter now has the ability to fly.
  • To absolutely no one’s surprise, Henrik Sedin leads the Canucks in scoring this year, with 40 points (9-31-40) in 35 games.  Corey Potter’s flying power will need to come in handy against Henrik and his twin.
  • Khabibulin will try for his twelfth win of the season.  He’ll likely have his hands full.
