The Sky Is Falling

Well, Boxing Day isn't the luckiest of days for the Anaheim Ducks. Already without Ilya Bryzgalov, the Ducks lost their number one keeper, J-S Giguere to a groin injury. Giguere, the co-leader in points in the pool, left the Boxing Day match against the Sharks midway through the second period. As of this morning, there is no word to the extent of how bad the injury actually is, but as groin injuries have been going this season, it could be two games or it could be an extended period of time.

Also with the Ducks, they lost playoff performing defenseman, Francois Beauchemin to a "lower body" injury as well against the Sharks. He left the game as well and the Ducks have yet to say the type of injury or how long the injury will keep him out.

The Canucks ended the Flames 10-game home winning streak on Boxing Day and snapped their own 6-game losing streak on the road... so tonight is time for the Flames to exact a little revenge in GM Place. Daniel Sedin had a pair of goals and brother, Henrik, had a pair of assists in the game. Roberto Luongo picked up the win and only two points as Chuck Kobasew & Andrew Ference each picked up assists on rookie, David Moss' goal.
