Another really dumb thing...US Hockey made up the sched. Not sure WTF they were thinking.
First of all having an outdoor game in a short tournament where every game is fairly important.
Second, playing their biggest rival with less than 24 hrs rest.
Third, having the game start at 3 on a Friday. Wouldn't the stadium be a heck of a lot fuller on a Saturday? Attendance has been bad so far...time to go back to actual junior hockey towns for this...
Again, I wouldn't judge anyone on that game. It wouldn't be far-fetched to say none of those players will ever play in those conditions again as long as they live...at least not in an organized game
. Oettinger is also a very good goalie. And he let in worse goals than Hart did. That first one was terrible.
Hart isn't a "wow you" type netminder. He's generally in position so doesn't have to make those spectacular saves. His D left him hanging out to dry yesterday on man
