Giguere Injured In Loss To Columbus

from Eric Stephens of the OC Register,

Goaltending seemed to be down the list of the litany of issues the Ducks have had to deal with in their uninspiring start to the season.

Now you can add that to the list after Jean-Sebastien Giguere gave up a backbreaking soft goal by Columbus defenseman Fedor Tyutin with 3:22 remaining that decided the Blue Jackets’ 6-4 victory Saturday night at Honda Center….

“When you go through stretches like we’re going through right now, it seems that when something has a chance to go wrong, it’s going wrong,” Coach Randy Carlyle said. “You have to just persevere.”

The loss could be magnified as Giguere, who had been dealing with a minor groin muscle strain, appeared to re-injure himself on the play and left the ice. Making his third start, Giguere stopped 30 shots but also let four get by in a disastrous second period.
