GREAT game to watch. Back and forth and high speed. Smaby is an animal. A little bigger and faster than Sarich, and loves to hit. Good balance. A lot to learn hockey sense-wise, but that's expected from a true freshman. Mean SOB. His assist came SH when he knocked a guy off the puck against the boards, then knocked the puck away from a MN player who had come over to help. Puck went to Parise, who kicked it ahead and they get a SH goal to tie it at 4. Smaby earned some praise from the Minnesota PBP crew: "Smaby's about 6-5 but skates like he's 5-10." They also complimented one of his hits on a sequence in which he was penalized. Guy came around the net to set a pick and Smaby knocked him on his chest, then attacked the puck carrier and hit him into the boards. He was penalized for knocking the guy down who set the pick. There was another sequence where he was chasing a guy behind his net and the smaller forward stopped and went the other way and Smaby did the same, staying right with him. You don't see that kind of agility from big men. Minnesota's first goal came on the PP and Smaby was in the middle of it. Puck came from right wing to two forwards in front of the net. Smaby was the only UND player there. He met the first guy when the puck did and lifted his stick, but the puck went through to the 2nd forward, who had an open net to shoot at. I don't think Smaby saw the 2nd guy. Only a few sequences in which he got caught out of position. This guy loves to hit and he seems to be used a lot. No PP time, but on the ice for the first shift after a PP.
