Canucks’ Sami Salo ‘game-time’ decision for Game 3 against Predators

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Vancouver associate coach Rick Bowness says defenceman Sami Salo is a “game-time decision” for Game 3 against the Nashville Predators.

Salo was among the last Canucks off the ice after an optional skate Tuesday morning, hours before Game 3 of the series. Salo suffered an undisclosed injury in Game 6 of the Canucks’ opening series against Chicago.

The 36-year-old defenceman missed the first four and a half months of the season recovering from a torn Achilles tendon, but was Vancouver’s best all around defenceman the year before. He had one goal and was minus-2 the first five games of the playoffs.
