NHL Network to celebrate goalies on Saturday

The NHL Network-U.S. celebrates spectacular goaltending achievements on Saturday, Nov. 28, with a special programming block dedicated to netminders.

On Monday, New York Islanders goalie Dwayne Roloson made 58 saves, leading his team to a 4-3 overtime win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. It was the most saves in an NHL game since Ron Tugnutt made 70 for the Quebec Nordiques in a 3-3 tie at Boston on March 21, 1991. Beginning at noon ET on Saturday, NHL Network will treat viewers to a full re-airing of both games.  

Rounding out the programming at 4 p.m. ET, NHL Network will present a re-airing of the NHL Network original program "50 Years Behind The Mask." The program celebrates the golden anniversary of one of the seminal events in NHL history -- the moment when legendary Montreal Canadiens goaltender Jacques Plante revolutionized his position, and the sport, by donning a face mask in a League game. 

The program draws upon archival footage and interviews with Plante’s contemporaries to tell the story of that transformational night of Nov. 1, 1959.  A visit to the Hockey Hall of Fame and interviews with current NHL goaltenders – including Cam Ward, Tim Thomas, Steve Mason, Chris Mason, Craig Anderson and others – advance the story to the present day.

The Islanders-Maple Leafs game and "50 Years Behind The Mask" will be presented in high definition.
