Canucks might get big boost
The Vancouver Canucks might be getting healthy just at the wrong time ... for the Senators.
The Canucks expect both winger Alexander Mogilny (back injury) and defenceman Adrian Aucoin (groin) to return tomorrow versus Ottawa at GM Place.
It's also possible captain Mark Messier could return from a knee injury. If so, Messier would be back in action 10 days earlier than expected when he went out with a sprained ligament Nov. 9.
The Canucks have been struggling with up to eight players out of the lineup due to injuries.
