 Perhaps they'll be handing out foam antlers to fans in Vancouver come Game 5.

 It'll be in anticipation of a goaltender that Canucks faithful hope can repeat a playoff run of a couple years back.

 With Dan Cloutier expected to be out for the remainder of the series with a suspected knee injury, Johan 'Moose' Hedberg is back in the post-season picture.

 "We hope that Dan can come back," said Canucks veteran winger Mike Keane. "But we're very confident that Johan can do the job."

 Cloutier left the game with 29.2 seconds remaining in the first period with what the Canucks termed a lower-body injury. It followed a play that saw him fall back awkwardly on his right knee in an attempt to grab a loose puck off a rebound shot made by Oleg Saprykin.

 Play continued to the other end and the Flames got another rush on Cloutier before a whistle finally ended the action. Cloutier was visited by trainer Mike Bernstein before being helped off the ice and to the dressing room with an apparent leg injury.
