I hope everyone will give this kid a chance to find his game. Granted the last three games he has started were not against the best players the other team has, but then again we didn't have our best players either. Having said that in the three games Pfliger faced 91 shots and turned away all but 5. Not too bad for your first three games in the OHL. Does anyone know if Mike Brown will be back for today's game? If not, it could get interesting. Playing a rookie Thursday, Saturday & Sunday is a lot to ask. If Miller is in goal, however, we just come to appreciate Pligler that much more.
As far as the suspensions go, I am not much help. I don't know about the preseason, but like McCartysux said Kozak and Pain have two game suspensions carried over from last season and are eligible to return September 18th. I think it has been a pretty good preseason. The boys are playing hard to make the team. I think this will account for a lot of the extra penalties. Things should settle down once the season starts.
