Road Trip to Raleigh
The net worth of the netminders
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).

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
