Luongo got the flu, which pushed back his return date. Daniel Sedin’s recovery from a broken foot stalled, and the Canucks’ best scorer went home.

“I can’t think of a better way to come back than to have Tomas Holmstrom draped on my back for 60 minutes.”
And if Holmer’s twiggy happens to get up near your ribs…well, don’t blame us.
