|Ed Belfour - Dallas
The Vancouver Canucks said Friday that they will bill Dallas
goalie Ed Belfour for damaging the visiting locker room during a game Thursday
Belfour broke two televisions, a clock and a VCR and damaged the
walls inside the dressing room after being pulled during the first period of
the Stars' 4-3 overtime victory. Brian Burke, the Canucks' president and
general manager, would not comment, but media relations manager Chris Brumwell
confirmed that the team would bill Belfour.
Belfour was replaced by
backup Marty Turco 14:31 into the first period after he was beaten by a
screened power play shot from Ed Jovanovski and on a breakaway by Trevor
Letowski. He skated straight to the locker room and didn't return to the Dallas
bench until the start of the second period.
It was the second straight
game that Belfour, who received a gold medal as Canada s third goaltender at
the Salt Lake City Olympics, was lifted. He also was replaced by Turco after
giving up four goals during a 5-1 loss to Phoenix on Tuesday. Belfour did not
talk to reporters after the game and Stars officials were not available on
Friday for comment.
