Grabovski was tossed in the first period of the Canucks’ eventual 2-1 shootout win for boarding Sedin from behind. Sedin appeared to be in serious discomfort, and was treated by trainers both on the ice and bench before exiting the game for good.
Vancouver players weren’t happy with Grabovski’s actions.
Sedin wouldn’t say what kind of injury he sustained, only saying “I couldn’t go (back in) and it was impossible and it doesn’t happen very often — it’s not a good feeling.”
It’s unclear what his availability will be for the remainder of Vancouver’s current road trip. Yesterday’s tilt was game three of six, with contests still to come against the Rangers, Bruins and Penguins.
