Goalie Competition

I'd like to know how hard the shots actually were. I believe Phil Axtell broke 100mph last year in Sioux City.

I can't believe Dustin Gazley didn't win or place in the fastest skater. Maybe he didn't participate, but he has got to be one of the fastest skaters in the league.

Good for DiGirolamo to make some noise in front of his home crowd.

Petry and Petrecki tied at 92 MPH in regulation, so they had 1 more playoff shot. Petrecki hit 92 again and Petry clocked in at 95 MPH.

Phil had two shots of 98mph last year, and I think his first shot was clocked at 95.

I swear he broke 100, maybe it was someone else.

Ryan, I know Petry scored for the west in the shoot out if you're still trying to add to it
