It’s not easy being a goalie. It especially doesn’t help when your defenseman pushes a rushing forward into your crease. Such was the case when the Jets hosted the Coyotes and Ondrej Pavelec was bulldozed by Shane Doan after a push from Mark Stuart.
Would Doan have hit Pavelec without the push? Maybe, but it certainly didn’t help things.
Doan was given a two-minute penalty for goaltender interference and Pavelec was forced to leave the game with a lower-body injury.
