Canucks' Daniel Sedin ruled out for Game 3

Vancouver Canucks forward Daniel Sedin will not play in Game 3 of their Western Conference quarterfinal series against the Los Angeles Kings.

Head coach Alain Vigneault stated after practice on Saturday that Sedin would not fly with the team to LA for Sunday night's game. Vigneault gave no further word on whether Sedin would be ready for Game 4 on Wednesday in Los Angeles.

Sedin hasn't played since March 21 after taking an elbow to the head from Chicago defenseman Duncan Keith. He finished the season with 30 goals and 37 assists in 72 games.

The defending Western Conference champion Canucks dropped the first two games against the Kings in Vancouver.
