article imageVancouver Canucks, L.A. Kings start time for Sunday up in air

By Marcus Hondro     Apr 19, 2012 in Sports
The Vancouver Canucks have a big hill to climb and will continue their journey Sunday in Vancouver in game 5 of their first round series with the L.A. Kings. As of the afternoon of Thurs., April 19 game time had not been announced.
Note that the game time has now been set; story here.
The teams will have had 3 full days between games after Vancouver made the series 3 games to 1 on Wednesday with their 3-1 road win. The schedule should suit the Canucks as Daniel Sedin returned from a concussion for game 4 and it gives him an extra day to rest and prepare.
Canucks game 5 start time: depends on TV
Game time is contingent on TV schedules and the start times for all four potential games Sunday are still being decided. Other Sunday games include Nashville in Detroit (if necessary, Nashville leads the series 3-1 and they play Friday in Nashville); Pittsburgh in Philadelphia (if necessary, the Flyers lead that series 3-1 and they play in Pittsburgh on Friday).
The other match-up for Sunday, April 22 has Boston in Washington, but that series, too might be over by Sunday. Boston leads the series 2 games to 1 and they play game 4 in Washington Thursday then game 5 in Boston Saturday. They are then scheduled, providing the Bruins don't win both those games and take the series, to play game 6 the very next day on the Sunday.
Daniel Sedin skated on Thursday in Vancouver, the day after their win in L.A., and appears not to have had a recurrence of concussion symptoms.
