Speaking of Smith, how is the "regression" everyone (but me) was predicting going so far?
Relax. He has 2 goals. One was a a bank shot off his shinguard and the other a sweet 2-on-1 setup that my grandma probably would have score on. That said, he has shown pretty impressive speed -- that's been somewhat lacking in his game last few years. Especially if you consider that this was the second game in two nights, against a team full of young guns.
He's shown speed AND had a bunch of other scoring chances.
