We didn’t do one of the Nations familiar “Stars and Goats” posts to start the season, but I can guarantee Dan Hamhuis wouldn’t have been on anybody’s “GOAT” list. I’m headed out for the night and Dimitri is… somewhere, so we won’t have a full recap of the game until tomorrow morning. In the meantime, here’s the thread you can complain about events that happened during this game, or about Hamhuis.
Goat or no, this is one of the game’s great bloopers that we’ll laugh about come Game 60.
Goat or no, it’s also worth noting that Dan Hamhuis’ PDO coming into this game was 86.7, the lowest on the Canucks. While it seems like he’s been bad this year, he’s gotten some brutal puck-luck, and this little negative run of his probably won’t last. Inexusable was the penalty he took on Lars Eller, that resulted in the 3-1 goal that likely put the game out of reach.
But maybe the Canucks came back. I don’t know. I have it on PVR. Don’t tell me how it ends.
