Shot Totals in PDX

The shot totals (for both teams) are usually on the "high end" in Portland.

Two simple reasons - any puck that gets "stopped" by the goalie that would have gone in tne net is considered a SOG - clearing attempts on the penalty kill from 180 feet that happen to go on goal count the same as a clear cut breakaway shot. (Amusing story from last night ... TC was on the power play when one of their down low forwards attemped a pass to a point man ....not very good pass and the puck was literally going about 1 mph when it reached Rimmer - yep shot on goal)

Second reason - any shot that the goalie gloves and stops is considered a SOG in PDX - never mind the fact that the shot would have been five feet wide of the target ...if the goalie "catches the puck" ..it's a SOG

That being said - Portland really did put on a "tremendous show" in the third period last night and absolutely skated the Ams "right out of the building - and onto the golf course"

but this was more about Calvin talking to the Sho-Ware about their shot count. It has been discussed on this board about the elavated shot counts against Pickard, during the 2010-2011 season I beleive.

They have always liked padding Pickard's stats

That has happened in a lot of places, for a lot of goaltenders.
