Defenseman Stephane Robidas broke five sticks Sunday in a 3-2 shootout win over Calgary. Robidas tapes three sticks for every game, and went through all three of them quickly. He then used the two practice sticks he has in the practice bag, and also broke those. He finished the game using Philip Larsen’s stick _ one of the few right-handed shots on the team like Robidas….
``It was a tough game, that’s for sure,’’ he said. ``I don’t know what happened. Sometimes, you just get a bad batch.’‘
Robidas said that one of the sticks was hit with a shot and that nicked the shaft and caused it to break, but said he didn’t remember any other strange happenings with the sticks. He said the plan is that a new batch of sticks will be in Vancouver today and will be ready for morning skate on Tuesday.
