Canuck goalie Dan Cloutier is a trooper.
He’s got a hip flexor issue, but he’s playing past it.
And it’s actually sharpening his game.
He shut-out LA last night.
The Canucks were wrecked by Todd Bertuzzi’s suspension. Their top line had to be reconfigured. Morale has to be awful. Things are bad in Vancouver.
And let’s be honest, here. Cloutier isn’t known to be a clutch goalie during the best of times. He knows that they all have to step up.
He did. He more than stepped up.
I don’t know about you, but I’m proud of Cloutier.
Let’s hope he can keep the momentum going.
