Is Goalie Interference On The Upswing?

from John Vogl of the Buffalo News,

After getting the wind knocked out of him, Ryan Miller thought he was trading goal posts for ring posts. The New York Islanders may as well have been Jimmy Snuka of the Fiji Islands.

“Just a good old-fashioned WWF knee drop to the back,” Miller said after his night of wrestling in the crease.

Buffalo Sabres fans howled for several goaltender interference calls Friday when the Isles visited HSBC Arena. They got one when Tim Jackman sat on Miller, which resulted in a pummeling by Paul Gaustad, who rushed to his goaltender’s aid.

“He was trying to spark his team by doing that,” Gaustad said. “It’s something that shouldn’t be allowed in this league, to be purposeful of trying to injure somebody to spark a momentum change for the team.
