Hopefully for the Nucks, Cloutier isn't badly hurt, or this could severely hamper their playoff hopes. Which to me seeing Clouts get helped off the ice, doesn't look too good.
Hedberg is a good goalie, but can he repeat his prior playoff perfomance.
Thanks for the concern. i too hope he is not hurt to badly, and that hedberg can play some amazing hockey. I guess this is just another thing for the canucks to fight through, and i hope they come out stronger and with a hard fought win.
Drury77, also i would like to say, your GDT setup is awsome, i apperciate all the work you put in to setting it up!
Cloutier made a save outside the blue ice on flames shot. As he was getting up his right skate slid away-and-under his body. For some reason the play wasn't stopped until the Flames took another shot at Cloutier. Eventually, He had to be helped off the ice by one of our players and trainer. Considering how wonky Cloutier's knees have been in the past, this could be a bad one.
Anyways, now we have Johan "Oops" Hedberg in net. Considering how inconsistent he has been this season, my confidence isn't exactly sky-high. Expect moments of praise mixed with moments of sheer underwhelment.
And Canuck fans have class? Every team has some classless fans.
The Canuck fans weren't cheering when Moore was being taken off the ice on a stretcher and what Canuck fans do has absolutely nothing to do with my comment. BTW, it wasn't just a few fans.. it was the whole arena.
despite what people say, Johan "Live Grenade" Hedberg has been very inconsistant this season, and has generally played poorly since arriving here. Cloutier has been one of Vancouver's MVP's and has at least been consistant.
all Calgary needs to do now is dump the puck in a rush Hedberg. it won't be long before they recieve a puck on their sticks for an empty netter.
i will gladly eat my humble pie if Hedberg pulls out some of the magic he displayed in previous playoffs... however i have my doubts.
When Bertuzzi attacked Moore from behind, Canuck fans were cheering. My brother was at that game. They weren't cheering when he was taken off on a stretcher though.
They were cheering just like fans of any team would cheer when one of their players takes a run at another, the wouldn't have been cheering if they knew the seriousness. The Flames fans were chanting "CLLLOOOUUUTTTIIEEERRR" all game and when he couldn't stand up they cheered and when he was helped of the ice they cheerd some more..
I can't wait to hear what Canuck fans say about the hit. If that was one of their players, God knows they'd be
It was a scary hit. the perfect distance away from the boards, check from behind. Iginla is Lucky. I cant wait for game 4 as well, but I sitll believe, with NHLs current suspension streak, he should get a game.
