Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Eric Duhatschek at the Globe & Mail:
Burrows took four penalties in the opener and coach Alain Vigneault suggested one - a goalie interference call on Tim Thomas - was largely unwarranted. The contact, in that case, did appear to be incidental and the Canucks have said that between games, they have contacted the NHL to get a clarification about why those calls are made, if Thomas is always leaving the crease to stop the puck. Thomas’s counterpart, Roberto Luongo, changed his style this season, to play deeper in the net, and Vigneault implied it had to do with avoiding incidental conduct.
According to Burrows, the answers were expected to come later Friday.
“At the same, I’ve got to be aware, around the net, to make sure I can’t bump the goalie. That’s his ice if he’s already there. I have to be smarter and make sure I don’t put my team down a man.”
