Game one against the Stars was an epic battle, and like all epic battles won or lost, there was a cost. With Brent Sopel already out with a non-hockey related back injury, Matt Cooke went down with a groin problem and is day-to-day. Alex Burrows very obviously got his "bell rung", wobbling to his feet and attempted to pick up his stick like a Chinatown tourist trying to pick up a grain of rice with chopsticks. Interviews have him "feeling fine", but there's no telling how long he'll be out. Ryan Kesler, in his first game back after hip surgery, took a puck in the hand and is now out 4-5 weeks with a broken finger. The Canucks just went down a couple of grades in grit.

Callups include the imminently forgettable Dane Jannick Hansen (who wears Kesler's cursed #17 on the Moose), and -13 rated forward Nathan Smith.
This does not fill me with confidence. I'm holding my breath until 6pm.
