    Smith was great in the match. He got an assist with one of the goals and help set up the other.

    we are talking about different Smith's methinks... he has been subpar save for a few games.

    Smith with an exceptionally good game tonight. :)

    Horst... I love the dude's fire... but he is not a starter in this league. someone worded it perfectly... "Horst is a ticking timebomb on defense, and it went off in stoppage time."

    Smith timed his jump perfectly and deflected the ball correctly with his head. Otherwise it would have been a goal for Vancouver.
