VANCOUVER -- Vancouver Canucks coach Willie Desjardins had to pause for a sip of water to soothe his hoarse voice as he talked to the media before boarding a flight to Calgary on Saturday.
Desjardins was asked if he lost his voice yelling at goalie Eddie Lack, who said his coach was screaming at him to stay out of a post-whistle scrum that saw all five players from each team square off around Lack's net with 1:17 left in Game 2 of the Western Conference First Round on Friday, a 4-1 Canucks win against the Calgary Flames.
"I don't know if that might have happened," Desjardins said with a chuckle.
Desjardins was a lot clearer about how he expects Lack to handle future altercations around his crease when the best-of-7 series resumes in Calgary on Sunday (10 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports).
