Smitty was frustrated from being screened many times during the game. The TB d-men were not clearing out the crease like they're supposed to--Voros could have sat in a chair the entire game. The penalty left Tampa Bay two men short---not very smart on Smith's part.
Being a Wings fan, I've seen goalies do MUCH worse to Holmstrom, than Smith did to Voros. All those fans were gasping like that never happens in hockey. It's a very common occurrence. Usually doesn't result in the gloves dropping, but this one seamed inevitable.
Looked like Smith got a few uppercuts in there. And Voros didn't seam to land anything. So I gotta give the edge to Smith.
That was friggin awesome! I don't think Smith likes Voros, like at all...
I don't know why everyone is boo-hooing for Smith. From what I saw, he was the aggressor by far, he was hacking the crap out of Voros, and he threw the first punch (all the while protected by two feet of padding). I saw nothing done by Voros that warrants such actions. I'm actually suprised by how well he took it. That first wack could have broken his leg. I would have had no problem with Voros pounding the "defenseless" netminder. Draw.
I think I'm just going to stay out of this one. lol
Voros was bugging Smith all game long and the refs weren't calling it both ways. Smitty took his frustrations out on Voros. Tom Renney is a douchebag by the way, calling for a suspension, I hate when coaches say anything about players when they don't even play the game. Shut up Tom, let the players handle it.
