While Henrik Lundqvist will close in goal for Team Staal, the Carolina faithful erupted when Ward took the crease.
On Team Lidstrom, the goalie lineup is very strong, consisting of Jonas Hiller, Marc-Andre Fleury and Tim Thomas. Thomas is having a sensational season thus far, making a strong case for the Vezina trophy. To me, Hiller and Ward look to be the most vulnerable of the goaltending group (the two surrendered the most in the breakaway elimination challenge last night).
That group is not satisfied until we win a Stanley Cup. When we do win that Stanley Cup, I don't think we'll be satisfied then either. We're going to want another one. We have the group to do it. We have all the pieces. We just need to put them together.
