The Vancouver Canucks will be without their best player, goaltender Roberto Luongo, for an undetermined number of games after he suffered an undisclosed injury during Tuesday night's game against the Detroit Red Wings.
it happens when the refs let players fall all over him last night
probably was bertuzzi crushing his arm between himself and the post
Yup. It's been happening way to much lately and it's getting worse. I was watching a Rags game the other day and Lundqvist was getting crashed time after time. Kipper has been getting a lot of it to this season and a few times I thought he was injured right after getting clobbered.
are we really pretending that a major part of Detroit's offence isn't to crash the crease as much as possible?
i'm not critcizing the wings, they are doing as much as they can get away with and they are obviously very successful... but lets be honest here this is not incidental goalie contact -- this has been a DRW staple for years and years.
lets not act here like red wing players are just innocent bystanders that happen to be pushed into goalies a lot.
