That does put some perspective on why Raffi made the contact. The treatment of goaltenders had become somewhat more cavalier of late. It seems that goaltender interference isn’t called at all.
The contact Shaw made with Smith did not look serious, Shaw was skating behind net trying to get to the puck and his shoulder made contact with Smith, Shaw didn’t go out of his way to hit him. Smith threw his hands up and fell backwards, embellishment. Smith finished the game, no injuries. They didn’t let Smith practice after that, until the league announced Shaw would get 3 game suspension, then all of a sudden Smith is going to start (Tues. game). Then they have the nerve to call the Torres hit a “hockey play.” Sometimes I feel like these games are fixed with the calls/no calls.
