Clowe says it’s time for Sharks to get physical

Ryane Clowe vows the Vancouver Canucks won’t get off as easy in Game 2 of the Western Conference final.

Ryane Clowe vows the Vancouver Canucks won’t get off as easy in Game 2 of the Western Conference final.

The rugged forward says Canucks defencemen can expect to be pounded into the end boards while retrieving pucks from now on.

That didn’t happen enough in Vancouver’s 3-2 victory in Game 1 and Clowe, a six-foot-two, 220-pound left-winger, intends to do something about it tonight.

“We’ve obviously got big forwards and (delivering hits) is definitely a part of my game,” said Clowe.

Yet the Fermeuse, N.L., native has hands soft enough to generate four goals and 13 points this post-season to tie Joe Thornton for the team lead.

“Last game it was just one of those games where it was tough to get ... rhythm or momentum going,” Clowe said.

“That comes off a lot of things but a lot of it has to do with wearing them down. That’s a big part of my game and we’ve got a lot of forwards 220-plus.”
