Six Saves – October 4th, 2017: Mike Smith’s Mask Saves The Day
The return of NHL hockey means one thing to us here at InGoal Magazine: The return of incredible saves! There’s no better way to celebrate than to go through a countdown each and every night of the best from around the league, and that’s exactly what Six Saves intends to accomplish.
Mike Smith may have been beaten two times by McDavid, but he was hung out to dry by his defence quite often. So much so, he finished with a whopping 42 saves on the night. He also owes his mask for saving his life, as his best save of the night came on a point-blank one-time clapper from Oilers defenceman Oscar Klefbom. It blew off a strap and sent his mask flying, but he made the save, didn’t die – and most importantly, finishes on the top of the list of the first Six Saves of the season. Enjoy:
