News from Vancouver

The Canucks have done a recall of Luc Bourdon (Box 11), Jason Jaffray (non-pool) and Mike Brown (non-pool) before their game against Tampa Bay tonight. Bourdon is expected to make his 10th start of the season during his second call-up.

All of these roster moves are in lieu of injuries now that Sami Salo (Box 5) is now doubtful for tonight's match against the Lightning after tweaking his groin versus Dallas on Tuesday night. It's another big blow for the team, which had already lost Willie Mitchell (non-pool) to a stress fracture in a vertabrae in his back last week.

On another note, Kevin Bieksa (Box 4) will resume skating at the end of the week and he's aiming for a return sometime in February. He has been out with a lacerated calf muscle for the last two months.

Tonight in Tampa Bay, Roberto Luongo (John B.) is expected to get the start.
