Completely off topic, but after watching the video explanation on Kronner's hit, I decided to check out some of the others that were out there, and came across this. I don't even remember this happening... First shift in the NHL. Huh.
I was at the game tonight... not to take ANYTHING away from his great performance tonight, but 2 of his 3 goals were standard saves for an NHL goalie. Not to mention his 3rd goal was an unscreened slapshot from a step inside the blue line, against a replacement goalie who had never seen the ice as a professional. He needs to continue to find new ways to use his booming shot.
Off topic a sec ... I just noticed grand rapids won 7-1 that would of been 4 shut outs in 6 games for mrazek right?
Also would have been 3 consecutive. He gave up a weak goal about 2 minutes into the game though. Recovered nicely though and made some really nice saves throughout the rest of the game.
