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

He's been one of our top players all year. Tonight he was by far our best player. There wasn't anybody in the same universe as him.
