Alright hockey fans we have playoff hockey upon us! Who is the goalie that will lead their team to the promise land to hoist the greatest trophy in all of sports? We have already seen Jonathan Quick revive his team from the dead and lead them to the second round. Carey Price and Tuukka Rask are battling out their series in the trenches, and Anaheim has switched back to their go to veteran Jonas Hiller. Don't worry we didn't forget to mention Rangers beloved Henrik Lundqvist who seems to carry his team on his back year after year. The man who does not receive the credit he deserves is Corey Crawford who has already notched a Stanley Cup onto his resume. Will Marc-Andre Fleury exercise his demons and quiet all the critics? Only time will tell. We will have to stay tuned as it should be a great couple of months upon us!
With the Winter Olympics opened up here we are all just on standby for some men's ice hockey. Many would argue this is the game at its purest and most graceful form. With wide open ice, speed and world class skill dominating the stage its hard not to agree. Every four years hockey fans are graced with this spectacle. Par for the course is all star cast for almost every lineup. With teams such as; Canada, Finland, Sweden, Switzerland, USA, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Russia and more, there will be fantastic goal tending all around. With so many great goaltenders to select from, it's got to be difficult to pick your starter as a coach for any of these teams. Some might say go with whoever the hot hand is, but what if you have multiple goalies who are playing well? Do you flip a coin or have Quick, Miller, and Howard rock, paper, scissor for it before the game?. Needless to say it should be great spectating for us fans and I personally feel we are in for a real treat! Young up and coming goaltenders out there get out your pens and pencils because school is now in session! Enjoy the festivities!
