Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Matthew Sekeres of the Globe and Mail,
The main actor on Saturday was Linden, and the fans came to glory him regardless of what the scoreboard read. An emotional farewell began before the start of the third period, and continued throughout the frame and into a post-game ceremony.
Rather than surrounded their goaltender after the final buzzer, the Canucks encircled Linden, each player getting a personal moment and some whispers into his ear. Then, in a classy move, Flames captain Jarome Iginla pulled his teammates from the locker room and had them line up and shake hands with Linden.
Several times, Linden gestured towards his heart and then to the crowd during a parade lap around GM Place.
