Every goalie has a great game or two... to do it on a consistent basis is the Key.

Hence the statement that Cloutier rocked tonight.

Hope this win boosts his confidence and keeps him on a roll.

Agree agree agree! It was great to see him stay focused on the game while guys like Lappy and Avery were really trying to get him riled.

Watching the Kings tonight, I got a real sense that they have a whole team of Matt Cookes. It's like everyone of their players finished their hits. The Nucks were getting slammed all over the ice. Great forecheck, and if they actually had a bit more finish, the Nucks would have been done like dinner... er... whatever that mean. heh.. they would have lost!

Anyone still unhappy the Canucks didn't grab Chechmanek? (sp) Man, he looked like a wipped dog after that second goal... kinda felt sorry for him... well, just kinda.

This should boost the confidence of the entire team, not just Cloutier

This is the first time that I can remember that Cloutier stole a game.

I never saw or heard the game so can't really comment. However by the sound of things sounds like Cloutier was swarmed and had to stand on his head. Maybe he plays better when he gets lots of action. Gets more into the game and has no chance to mentally drift out of the game. Some goalies just excell when they see lots of action. In many games Cloutier has to wait around for a shot.


Just a theory and I certainly don't recommend trying to get the other team to pepper him with shots just to keep him in the game however. But maybe a factor to consider when judging Cloutier.

Maybe Clouts is better on the road?

The good news from the LA game is that maybe, just maybe, our goaltending is better than the anti-Cloutier crowd, armed with their mountains of moronic statistics, would have us believe.

The bad news is that once again the team showed it struggles against scrappy, hard working teams that employ the neutral zone trap.

I am applauding Cloutier after last night, great game from him. I just hope that you realize that the Cloutier bashers usually don't use stats to boost their arguements, instead they point to the fact that Cloutier screws up at inopportune times where momentum swings often occur and games/series are lost. Also, let's hope Clouts can put a nice string of games together. Just remember, one good game shouldn't make him, just as and several bad games shouldn't break him. Let's just support him and hope he does well and while trying not to look foolish by making any early pressumptions about how amazing our goalie situation is.

On a more important note...

Was that Daniel's first breakaway in like three years?

Now I don't expect Cloutier to play like that every night b/c he's only human and as such isn't perfect and has ups and downs.

However, if he could steal a few games here and there, it would make up for for the ones that he just plain blows. That way the team gives up some points they should have had but in the end they pick up points they don't deserve... keep the balance, I can handle that.

Looking around the western conference these days, I must say I'm feeling much more secure with our goaltending duo than most other teams.

I'm assuming Hedberg gets the nod tonight b/c it's a back-to-back game.

Nothing memorable comes to mind that's for sure but Danny did look as though he had some wheels. He sure crashed into the boards pretty hard though. I hope he's okay; don't need him to re-injure his back.
