Cowan out indefinitely following knee surgery
Cowan, who was hurt late in Game 3, will be out for an indefinite period, according to the team.
Cowan, a tough guy picked up off waivers from Los Angeles on Dec. 30, was playing on the second line in the playoffs and scored two of Vancouver's five goals in this series, which the Ducks led two games to one. He had the double-overtime winner in Game 2 in Anaheim.
Cowan had seven goals, three assists and 93 penalty minutes in 47 games with the Canucks in the regular season.
The Canucks did get back defenseman Kevin Bieksa, who hadn't played since Game 7 against Dallas in the first round, from an undisclosed injury for Game 4.
