You guys need to rewatch that goal. Smith started the forecheck, circled around the net, caught up the the dman and forced him to run right into Halischuk. Halischuk had literally just stepped on the ice from a line change and was just standing there as Smith forced the dman to turn the puck over to him. Halischuk skated 10 feet and passed the puck off to Spaling who sniped it. Halishcuk had the easiest job on that play.

Not trying to downplay his poke check, but without Smith's speedy backchecking, that dman easily skates around Halischuk since he was caught flat footed.
