So it looks like Elliott plays again on Sunday due to getting the shutout?
Can you guys tell me why the coach has this rule about a shutout earns another start? I dont get it...is it just to motivate each goalie to get a shutout?
Imagine in baseball a starting pitcher's arm never gets tired. If the pitcher hasn't allowed a run (or even a hit if the analogy needs more intuitive oomph) and his arm can't get tired, how can the coach justify taking him out? Integrity of the professional athlete's right to be dominant for as long as he shows he can maintain it. This is the soul of competition. It's a very natural rule the way I see it.
