Darling runner-up for goalie of the week.

Reign goaltender Curtis Darling was one of two runners-up for ECHL goaltender of the week honors, which went to Shane Connelly of the South Carolina Stingrays today. Chris Beckford-Tseu of Florida was the other runner-up.

When you look at the numbers, it seems like an easy call:

Connelly: 3 starts, 3-0-0,
0.00 GAA, 1.000 save percentage, 3 shutouts
Darling: 3 starts, 3-0-0, 2.92 GAA, .910 save percentage
Beckford-Tseu: 3 starts, 2-0-1, 2.85 GAA, .918 save percentage

    Congrats to Connelly. He faced 50 shots for the week, and stopped them all.

    Darling faced 47 in ONE game during the week! Stopping 91% of the 111 shots he faced isn’t too shabby!

    Makes me wonder how these votes are tabulated…look at the individual you are rating, not the performance of the team!

    Off my soapbox.

    Like most votes there is clearly and East Coast bias.

    Good for Curtis. Haven’t seen the other two goalies in action, but from what I’ve seen of Darling, he’s not too shabby. Gives up a softy once in awhile and some wrap-arounds of late, but he’s also saved the team’s bacon on plenty of other occasions. Kudos!
