Former Iowa goalies square off

Dan Ellis and Mike Smith were teammates in the American Hockey League, playing in both the Utah Grizzlies and the Iowa Stars. As Mike Heika describes the post-season events that led Ellis to leave the Dallas organization, you feel the personal level of play that sometimes is evident on the ice, "Ellis decided he had a better chance to earn an NHL job somewhere else... "

He is 9-1-1 in his last 11 games. So, there was lots on the line when the Predators went ahead with Ellis against Smith in a game Saturday in Nashville. The final winner, Mike Smith's Stars 6-3. More on the game HERE
