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

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
