Mark, Get Set, Go-alie
Ever wonder who the fastest-skating goalie In the NHL is?

Well, you will have part of the answer Saturday night as Boston goalie Tim Thomas and Carolina's Cam Ward face off as part of the Bridgestone NHL Fastest Skater competition.

It should be an interesting part of the fastest-skating show that opens the show Saturday night.

Our initial thought is that Thomas will disappoint the RBC crowd by beating Ward in the head-to-head race. We have no scientific basis -- there are no 50-meter times or the like that we know about -- but, rather are drawn to the fierce competitiveness that Thomas brings to virtually any endeavor.



Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
