Carlyle: Gibson unable to relieve Bernier vs. Flames due to diarrhea

Sergei Belski / USA TODAY Sports

Extenuating circumstances prevented John Gibson from trotting onto the ice in relief of Jonathan Bernier during a lopsided 8-3 loss to the Calgary Flames on Sunday.

"We had to leave Bernier in the net because Gibson had diarrhea and had the flu all day," Anaheim Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle candidly admitted after the game, per Kristen Odland of Postmedia.

Had Gibson been available, Bernier would have been yanked at the 12:55 mark of the second period.

Perhaps this will make Bernier's .680 save percentage on the night a bit easier to stomach.
