Give it up for Alex Edler, guys. He was finally able to do what every hockey player in the Western Conference dreams about at night….running over Mike Smith. It’s pretty hard to dislike an NHL goaltender—most of them keep quiet behind their masks, don’t provoke other players, and generally earn the respect of the league for just allowing guys to shoot hard pieces of rubber...

“The law,” as Mr. Bumble so aptly put it in Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist, “is a ass — a idiot.”

This is not the first time that Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith has been run over behind his own net when he went to play the puck, but this time seemed way more painful. Vancouver Canucks defenseman Alexander Edler went to forecheck Smith as he was playing the puck and made no effort to skate around Smith. Edler plowed into Smith at full speed, knocking him down to the ice...
