VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Canucks prepared Monday to play without their coach and captain for the foreseeable future. Cole Beasley Jersey . Coach John Tortorella was suspended 15 days on Monday, a span that will include six games starting with Tuesday nights game in Edmonton. He missed practice to attend a disciplinary hearing in New York with NHL officials. Tortorella got in trouble for entering the Calgary dressing room area, in an apparent attempt to get at Flames coach Bob Hartley, after the first period of a game marred by a line brawl following the opening face-off. Meanwhile, assistant coach Mike Sullivan, who ran practice and will take the reins from Tortorella against the Oilers, confirmed that captain Henrik Sedin will miss the game due to an undisclosed injury. Sedins absence will bring his consecutive-games-played streak -- the second-longest among active NHLers -- to an end following 679 straight games. "His status is day to day, but he will not play in Edmonton," said Sullivan. While NHL officials did not appreciate Tortorellas actions, which were aired on "Hockey Night in Canada," the players did. "I think it shows how passionate he is and how much he cares about his team," said defenceman Kevin Bieksa, who was at the centre of the brawl. "The other guy (Flames coach Bob Hartley), I dont know what he was thinking. But I think you respect a coach more when you see that hell watch your back and you see how much he cares. "Were not just pawns out there." Bieksa was among the eight players -- four from each team -- who were ejected two seconds into the contest that featured 10 fighting majors and a total of 152 penalty minutes after both coaches put out their fourth lines first. The punches started flying when Bieksa moved from his defence position to take the opening draw after he saw Kevin Westgarth, usually a penalty-prone winger, preparing to take the opening draw against Kellan Lain, a rookie whose NHL debut lasted only two seconds before he was ejected for fighting. "I kind of put two and two together," said Bieksa. "We heard their starting lineup. We definitely knew what was going to happen and we were told to defuse the situation if we could. I saw Westgarth line up at centre and evened that match." Bieksa said Tortorellas between-period actions occurred because the coach was upset that Lain, whose parents travelled from Oakville, Ont., to watch him play, had to fight on his first shift, and the other bouts that occurred. Zack Kassian, who has been in and out of Tortorellas doghouse because of inconsistency, undisciplined play and penalties, also praised him. "No matter who you talk to in this (dressing) room, everyone knows (Tortorella) is changing the culture of this team," said Kassian, who was on the bench during the brawl. Tortorella indicated after the game that he put out his fourth line instead of his first forward unit because he was wary of potential injury to Daniel and Henrik Sedin, who do not usually fight. Winger Dale Weise, who was among the players ejected, said Tortorella, did not tell the fourth liners to drop their gloves. "I agree with putting that line out just in case something happened there," said Weise. "I totally agree with (Tortorella) 100 per cent. You cant take a chance with a guy like that, Westgarth, and how tough he is." "(Tortorella) is always preaching that hes always got our back," added winger Tom Sestito, Vancouvers resident heavyweight. "He was just showing up. Thats great. I think the guys rallied around him. I thought it was pretty good." Sullivan said the Canucks would accept Tortorellas punishment. The assistant felt Tortorellas actions near the Flames dressing room to the "heat of the moment" and declined to discuss them. "As far as the starting lineup, we talked about it as a (coaching) staff before he decided who he was going to put on the ice, and I know Torts motivation was to protect his players and his team," said Sullivan. Replacing Tortorella at the helm, he will try to get the Canucks back on a consistent track. Vancouver has only one win in its past four games and is 2-3-2 in its last 10. Bieksa said a switch to Sullivan, a former head coach with the Boston Bruins and New York Rangers, would be a change behind the bench, but not in how the team plays. "Sullys been a head coach in the NHL before and he knows what its like to be the big cheese behind the bench," said Bieksa. However, Henrik Sedins absence will prompt a change on the top line, where Ryan Kesler played centre in practice between Daniel Sedin and Alex Burrows. Henrik Sedin had ranked second in consecutive games played among active NHL players to St. Louis Blues defenceman Jay Bouwmeester. "I just think its a testament to how tough he is," said Sullivan. Henrik Sedin, who according to multiple media reports was playing with a splint on an injured finger and sore ribs, left Saturdays the game following the second period after Tortorella told him to take his equipment off. Burrows indicated it will take a while to get used to playing without Sedin, who has 40 points in 50 games and last missed a contest in March 2004. "Since Ive been here, hes played every game, and thats an amazing feat," said Burrows. "Hes such a big part of this team. a Well try to win without him, but well have to wait and see." Notes: Injured defenceman Ryan Stanton (ankle) and centre Jordan Schroeder (foot), who practised Monday, are close to returning to the lineup following extended layoffs and travelled with the team to Edmonton. a The Canucks have returned goaltender Joacim Eriksson now that starter Roberto Luongo has returned to the lineup. a Lane praised Bieksa for showing leadership by replacing him in the opening face-off Saturday.

FIFPro, the international soccer players union, had pressed FIFA to avoid the earliest kickoffs in the hottest and most humid weather. SAN FRANCISCO -- Barry Bonds may yet overturn his obstruction of justice conviction. Several members of an 11-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals expressed skepticism Thursday over the sole count that baseballs career home run leader was found guilty of following a trial three years ago. Circuit Judge William A. Fletcher called the prosecutions definition of obstruction "alarming" because Bonds ultimately answered questions before a grand jury about whether he was given drugs to inject himself with, an assertion he denied. Fletcher compared it with lawyers who evaded questions in civil litigation with the intent to mislead, and asked Assistant U.S. Attorney Merry Jean Chan whether that would be criminal behaviour. Chan said she believed it would. "So how many San Francisco lawyers do you intend to put in jail?" Fletcher said. "That is common behaviour in civil litigation. Have you just criminalized half the bar here? ... I find your reading of the statute absolutely alarming, and half the bar, maybe three-quarters, maybe all of the bar is in big trouble." A decision is not expected until next year. During an hour-long hearing, Circuit Judge Susan P. Graber had similar skepticism for prosecutors arguments that Bonds intended to mislead the grand jury, saying she doesnt see "there is sufficient evidence" because Bonds was asked and answered similar questions about drug use later during his 2003 testimony. After a three-week trial in 2011, the jury failed to reach a verdict on three counts charging Bonds with making false statements when he denied receiving steroids and human growth hormone from trainer Greg Anderson and denied receiving injections from Anderson or his associates. Prosecutors later dismissed those three charges. Bonds was convicted for giving a rambling answer to a question about whether he received injectable substances. Bonds appellate lawyer, Dennis Riordan, argued that Bonds "unresponsive" answer did not constitute obstruction. He was immediately met with questions on his logic. "One can mislead with the truth," Chief Judge Alex Kozinski ssaid. Zack Martin Jersey. "One can mislead with irrelevant statements to lead a grand jury down a blind alley." Chan argued that Bonds had a "corrupt intent" to mislead the grand jury with the rambling answer. A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit upheld Bonds obstruction conviction in a unanimous vote last year, but a majority of the courts 28 participating judges voted to set aside that decision and have the larger group rehear the appeal. Prosecutors asked Bonds during the grand jury appearance whether Anderson ever gave him "anything that required a syringe to inject yourself with?" Bonds referred to his father, former major leaguer Bobby Bonds, when he responded, "I was a celebrity child, not just in baseball by my own instincts. I became a celebrity child with a famous father. I just dont get into other peoples business because of my fathers situation, you see." Bonds answered "no" to similar questions later in his grand jury appearance, which Riordan argued was sufficient to cure any non-responsive answers. Some of the judges questioned whether Bonds had sufficient notice of what he was being charged with, since the third superseding indictment contained a broad obstruction charge and the specific statement was not included until the prosecution proposed jury instructions about a month ahead of the trial. The three-judge 9th Circuit panel ruled unanimously in September 2013 that Bonds testimony was "evasive" and capable of misleading investigators and hindering their probe into a performance-enhancing drug ring centred at the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative. "The statement served to divert the grand jurys attention away from the relevant inquiry of the investigation, which was Anderson and BALCOs distribution of steroids and PEDs," Senior Circuit Judge Mary M. Schroeder wrote. "The statement was therefore evasive." Barry Bonds has already served his sentence of 30 days of home confinement and paid a $4,000 fine. He was also placed on two years of probation and ordered to perform 250 hours of community service in youth-related activities.
