Niko Hovinen (2-3-0-1, 20 saves) was solid between the pipes to break a personal four-game winless streak of his own. Only a nice poke by Elmira of a loose puck to a wide open Jack Downing 8:19 of the third stopped his chances at a first career professional shutout.
It's great to see him have a good game (well, at least stats-wise), but what's with the "first career professional shutout" write-up? He's playing in this beer league, when compared to the Finish SM-Liiga, and he had a chance to get his first professional shutout? This unfortunately just adds credence to the stereotype of an ignorant North American "hockey" fan.
