Unmasked: Can playing guitar make goalies better?

Thursday, 01.08.2015 / 3:00 AM / Unmasked

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

Whether it's New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist ripping through "Sweet Child O' Mine" on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," or Arizona Coyotes goaltending coach Sean Burke jamming on stage with Garth Brooks, the links between goaltenders and guitars appears strong.

The list of guitar-playing NHL goalies includes Ryan Miller, Cory Schneider, Mike Smith and alumni Jose Theodore and Robert Esche -- and those are just the ones we know about.

For most, music makes a nice break from the game.

"It's more of an escape mentally to relax and think about something else," Lundqvist told NHL.com. "Music to me is a release; you are just relaxing and enjoy it and don't think about the game, and that kind of helps me save energy and come back to the rink."

Whether these wanna-be shredders know it or not, there are links between their ability to catch pucks and pluck guitar strings. Being able to do one can enhance the ability to do the other. Specifically, playing guitar can give a goaltender a better glove hand, according to some experts.

RED-HOT RANGERS DEFEAT LEAGUE'S TOP TEAM

Rick Nash's 25th goal of the season stood as the game-winner and Henrik Lundqvist made 24 saves to lead the Rangers to a 4-1 win against the League-leading Anaheim Ducks.

The Rangers have earned at least one point in 18 of their last 23 games (16-5-2).

*Nash's goal was his 25th of the season, one behind League-leader Tyler Seguin of the Dallas Stars. Nash leads the Rangers in goals, points (39) and plus/minus (plus-19). Nash extended his personal point streak against Anaheim to six games (5-2—7) and has 35 points (19-16—35) in 35 career games against the Ducks.

Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Steve Mason is expected to take part in the morning skate Thursday, general manager Ron Hextall said.

Mason left practice early Wednesday and was to have an MRI. Results were not revealed.

Mason and the Flyers did not disclose the injury, but Hextall said it wasn't related to the back injury that sidelined Mason last month, CSNPhilly.com reported.

"Any time you need an MRI it's cause for concern," Mason said in video posted on the Flyers website. "Cross my fingers that it's nothing too serious."

'Triplets' line adds scoring dimension for Lightning

Wednesday, 01.07.2015 / 4:30 PM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

They have been dubbed "The Triplets," and when you see them on the ice, it's easy to understand why.

Tyler Johnson, 5-foot-10, 182 pounds.

Nikita Kucherov, 5-11, 171.

Ondrej Palat, 6-0, 180.

Not only do the three members of one of the top lines in the NHL look alike when skating for the Tampa Bay Lightning, they all share the trait of being dismissed at one time or another in their hockey careers because of their similarly slight frames.

But since Oct. 24, when coach Jon Cooper was practically forced to put them together after losing forwards Brett Connolly and J.T. Brown in the first period of a road game against the Winnipeg Jets, "The Triplets" have been terrorizing the NHL.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.

— Sabres forward Jack Eichel on transitioning from college hockey to the NHL
