9 - 0 , Mike "Smitty" Smith Clears Up Trade Talk and Shuts the Door..
Tired of answering phones, faxes, e-mails, and text messages, "No I'm not going to Tampa Bay, that would be the other Mike Smith ", SVCU net minder Mike "Smitty " Smith made his own headlines last night. Playing perhaps the best hockey of his career, Smith was unbeatable. Seeing everything from all angles, controlling rebounds with ease, and flashing more leather than Ernie Pierrepont does in a life time, the resilient puck stopper finally was rewarded for his efforts. Playing the role of "Rentals", the combination of Craig "one more shot" Zamzow, and Barry "Crash the Net" Eggie could not find a crack in the cagey minders armour. Not wanting to have a repeat performance of previous outings, SVCU's blue line stayed true to the task at hand, and were an instrumental part in Smitty's shut out bid. Next action for SVCU sees them headed out to Bowsman Friday night to tangle with the Silver Seven.
