Facial cut sidelines Guerin for Game 5

DETROIT -- San Jose Sharks forward Bill Guerin will not play
against the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday in Game 5 of their
second-round series because of a cut on his face.

Guerin was injured after a teammate's deflected shot hit him in
Game 4 on Wednesday night, when the Red Wings won in overtime and
tied the series.

Sharks coach Ron Wilson said he has "no idea" if Guerin will
be ready to play Monday night in Game 6 at San Jose.

Guerin, acquired by San Jose just before the trade deadline, has
struggled in the playoffs, going scoreless with two assists in nine
games.
