Texters can't work out why Steelers haven't scored

With so many shots being cleared off the Devils line I woner if Aubry has built a liile wall of now on there as a Russian netminder did to the Devils in the European Cup. It didn't stay there long as Hilton Ruggles would skate through the crease at every stoppage
