We lose just as bad with Kipper, his numbers are dismal so far this year.
Again with numbers determining the play of a goaltender. I can only think of two games he's played where he cost us the game, and I can think of several games we won because of him, then there are the games where we won and lost as a team. Numbers are only a slight representation of the actual play of a goaltender. If you only look at his numbers he hasn't actually been that good for a good chunk of his career, but those that watch him, and I mean actually watch HIM play, can tell you that almost every night he brings it, and if you want to score you have to BEAT him, very rarely will you get a weak-mediocre one by him, and because of that, he gives us a chance to win every single night. It's too bad his best years were wasted on an abysmal team.
Meh, the right call was made - any way you slice it, that hit was illegal. Glencross didn't have to plow him into the boards. And it was only a two minute minor.
Hitting in itself is not illegal(well these types of penalites may call that fact into question). Smith turns away towards the boards and Glencross has no way to stop in time. It's an accident, nothing more.
