He'll play... All that acting, he looked like an Italian soccer player...
However, I think it was accidental on Shaw's part. I think he was expecting that he'd be able to slip past Smith along the boards. However, there was no room and unfortunately, Smith's head was in his path.
Shanahan's explanation was rather lengthy which tells me he was trying to go out of his way to find a reason to uphold the suspension.
This has been a crazy playoffs so far.
I agree this has been nuts... I think the LO is overstepping its bounds, regardless of who is pulling the strings...
Watching Shanahan break down the play, he kept insinuating he didn't try to avoid contact enough... He shouldered himself on the board and Smith's head just got in the way... So players should just stop skating when the goalie is no longer in the crease? That's fargin' crazy talk...
