What you think about “These Irish eyes are smiling”
How about George Hill for Goalie of the Week as per Randy’s story when he led the Irish to a Win and only let in 2 goals: “Irish on top of the Hill”.
I agree about George. Based on the stat’s of last Weekend he should of got the Top Goaltender of the Week award.
