Listening to the play by play. Stolarz is stealing this game... he just stoned Ryan Strome on a semi-break short-handed after Strome stole the puck from Maata.
That's good to hear that he's stepping up. I may be wrong, but wasn't it supposed to be him piggybacking one of the better teams in the CHL, meaning he wouldn't face this sort of challenge? Either way, I'm excited to see how he develops.
thats awesome. i really like the fact that he decided to make the change from college to OHL.
he's got a 2.25GAA and a 0.927SV% in 10GP. I'm not sure if that includes today's game or not. Relatively small sample size too but he's shown some promise. i'm really curious to see how things work out for him with the world juniors next year.
whats with the delay in the Phantoms game.
Im guessing someone on Springfield got hurt? Game delayed with 3:42 left. same time as a Manning boarding minor.
Philadelphia Flyers Nation (from Facebook)
Phantoms defenseman Brandon Manning boarded Springfield Falcons forward Wade Macleod. Macleod started skating back to the bench and collapsed and started having convulsions. Trainers and EMS on the ice, he's in a stretcher. Started twitching his arm. Prayers to him.
Here is a low-quality video, but you can see the hit (not the reaction). I expected to see a much worse hit or dirty play or something, but it doesn't look anything out of the ordinary. Wonder what caused it.
