Height Doesn’t Matter For Cammalleri

from Scott Burnside of ESPN,

Michael Cammalleri (he told reporters in Montreal on Monday he prefers it to Mike, but really doesn’t care) has been on fire with eight postseason goals, one off the league lead as of Monday morning. He has scored in six of nine postseason games, including two goals in the Habs’ big 3-1 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday that tied the series at 1.

It’s a stark change from a year ago, when Cammalleri had one goal in six games for Calgary in a first-round loss to Chicago….

The 5-foot-9 forward said he doesn’t really understand the idea that the size of the Habs’ small forwards, often referred to as “Smurfs,” would be a factor in the playoffs.

“It’s hockey,” Cammalleri said. “The puck’s on the ice. Sometimes I don’t understand that notion. It’s not basketball where the net’s 10 feet in the air, but what can I tell you?”
