07:42 AM ET 01.07 | It was a miscommunication by centers Paul Stastny and Matt Duchene that led on Monday night to an Avalanche bench minor and Calgary's game-winner at the Pepsi Center. Then, after absorbing a 4-3 loss to the offensively inept Flames -- who had scored just once in their four previous games -- Colorado coach Patrick Roy called out losing goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere. ... After being told that Giguere said the Flames seemed to be "a little hungrier" in front of the nets, Roy said: "I think Jiggy should have played better tonight. We're not going to look at our team. We might not have had the jump we should have, but Jiggy needs to be better. He hasn't played well in the last four or five games. He should stand up and say, 'I'm not playing up to what I should.' And he did not. He needs to be better."

What would have Roy done if Burns or Tremblay said that to him during his playing days?

Excellent point. Didn't he end up in Colorado after he blamed whoever the coach was in Montreal for not pulling him when he was getting shelled?

Always thought at the time they were going to put hands on each other. But after Vernon kicked his butt can see why it didn't:)

I have a good memory, I'm just losing details as I get older.

Canadians, if you actually needed another reason not to drink Labatt, here is a huge one!

WTF? Obviously, an American marketing department.

(And I still think this isn't a coincident.)

Gotta love when they call them out in such a manner to the press/publicly. Can't have that discussion behind closed doors?

It's celebrating the year of our nation's confederation, no?

That's good too but I was thinking it's the number of counties in Pennsylvania.
