Injuries already mounting for Pens, Canucks

It's only a couple weeks into the season, yet when the Vancouver Canucks meet the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday at PPG Paints Arena, one of the main story lines for both clubs will revolve around injuries.

The Penguins (2-1-1) lost one of their top two-way defensemen when Justin Schultz had surgery Sunday for a broken lower left leg. He was hurt Saturday when he apparently got his skate stuck in a rut on the ice while falling and is expected to miss four months.

"It's a huge loss for us, especially what he brings, the role he plays in tons of aspects of our team," fellow Pittsburgh defenseman Kris Letang said Monday. "He stabilizes the whole (defensive) corps."
