Ok, congratulations to Matt Barnes, winner of the Scott Brower Memorial Trophy for Most Outstanding Goaltender.
If he plays this weekend, the Austin netminder can still set new CHL records for save percentage (Barnes currently trails Ken Carroll's '00-'01 mark of .935 by one-hundredth of a point) and possibly shutouts (currently eight, shared by Barnes and Rod Branch -- remember when he was a serious candidate for the award? -- this season and Grant Sjerven from '00-'01). Carroll's all-time GAA supremacy (1.89) appears safe, unless Barnes plays two and puts up goose eggs on both nights.
