Mask and Reebok pads sport kings original purple and gold colours Jonathan Bernier didn’t go quite as far as partner Jonathan Quick’s vintage brown pads and retro tribute mask, but the new Los Angeles backup went out of his way to make sure he matched the King’s colourful throwback jerseys. Bernier added a gold and purple twist to his customized Reebok Revokes to mirror the vintage sweaters the Kings will wear four times this season, starting with the season opener in Vancouver on Saturday night. And even though Bernier and the Kings won’t be wearing the old-school jerseys when...

Quick’s Retro Mask and Gear for Canucks 40th Anniversary Home Opener

[wpfblike] Jonathan Quick may mimic his last name on the ice, but the Los Angeles No.1 was a lot slower to take credit for the sharp retro look he will debut in the Kings’ season opener as the Canucks celebrate their 40th anniversary in Vancouver on Saturday night. Quick passed the credit along to equipment manager Darren Granger for coming up with the idea of wearing throwback brown Vaughn pads and a Rogie Vachon-inspired helmet for the four games the Kings will sport the yellow-and-purple retro look this season. “It was all Darren’s idea because we’re wearing the jerseys...

Leighton back surgery keeps Bobrovsky with Flyers

The annual soap opera that is goaltending in Philadelphia took another surprise turn on Friday with news that incumbent No.1 Michael Leighton needs surgery for a bulging disk in his back and will be out for the next six to eight weeks. The announcement comes a day after Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette shocked many, including expected starter Brian Boucher, by starting impressive Russian rookie Sergei Bobrovsky in their season-opening game in Pittsburgh. The 22-year-old, signed in April as an undrafted free agent out of Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League, responded by keeping Philadelphia in the game by stopping all 15 shots in the first period and 29 overall en route to a 3-2 victory over the Penguins. Bobrovsky was already gaining a cult-like following in Philadelphia, and news he will be around even longer, combined with another strong showing in an expected start in St. Louis on Saturday, will only grow the legend of “Bob” among a Flyers fan base starved for its first homegrown goaltending star since Ron Hextall. It also gives InGoal Magazine another chance to link to our feature on the incredibly fast rise of Bobrovsky from Russian standout to potential NHL...

Three Goalie Stars for November 1: You Choose

For the third straight week InGoal Magazine wants you to pick the three stars. The poll will run all day Sunday, with the winner revealed Monday morning, and just like the last two weeks, we are accepting write-in votes and encouraging campaigning among fans. So you decide, are shutouts in his only two starts enough for Boston’s Tim Thomas to take the award home for a second straight week? It’s hard to improve on perfection, but there’s something to be said for volume, and Henrik Lundqvist was a lot busier in New York, stopping 132 of 139 while going 3-1-0. On the opposite coast, Jonathan Quick stopped 39 shots in a 3-1 win over New Jersey for a 3-0-0 week. Or maybe Brent Johnson has peaked your interest in Pittsburgh, whose only loss was 1-0 to Jaroslav Halak in St. Louis, another great candidate. Perhaps the ongoing early success of rookie Michal Neuvirth in Washington, or signs Antero Niittymaki is ready to take over in San Jose, or … Poll is now closed – thank you to all who voted.
