I got the impression just from the short time the camera panned on him he was more 'sore' at the side of the lower back (was pointing and reaching down there more to the side) as opposed to the back himself if you get my gist.
Just my opinion but I didn't get the impression that he was having spasms also in that he was moving position freely.
His glorious chance just 30 seconds in was giftwrapped, even Moss would have buried that one. The fact he slid it off the post showed he just wasn't on his game tonight.
That was verified the rest of the game, as the only times he was noticable was getting knocked off the puck along the boards or giving up the puck at the blueline. Finally the pentaly at the end of the game, albeit questionable, is one you just can't risk taking at that point. He didn't argue on his way to the box, so methinks he knew he was guilty.
How many of our oints this years have come from "new" players.
I have been completely suprised by Prust this last bunch of games. Not the tenaciousness but the creating of multiple scoring chances every period.
I couldn't agree more. I actually don't think Iginla has been all that great, though he's shown some flashes here and there. It's a testament to scoring depth that the team is still winning games--it's a nice thing to have.
As for your exact question, so far 15 goals have been scored by newcomers--Calgary's total goals for is 34. That tells a story right there.
