InGoal Testing Advertising

InGoal will be displaying ads in the next day or so and continue to do so for a limited time We are testing the displaying of ads at InGoal Magazine  now for a limited time. You might wonder why… After nearly three seasons our growth has been significant and to keep up with the tremendous demand – nearly 50,000 of you dropping by some days with a list of email subscribers 8,000 strong – we have had to upgrade our server, deploy a CDN (content distribution network), and employ a professional e-mail newsletter service. In short, to keep serving you and to expand to as many goalies as we can around the world, our hobby is beginning to get expensive. So for 15 days we are testing ads to see if they will help support our expansion without detracting too much from the experience of our readers. We value your support and we value your opinion. If you have any thoughts or comments about this (or anything else), please send us a note – an email to [email protected] will get to both Kevin and to David. Thanks for all your support and for your patience. – The InGoal...

Three Goalie stars for November 1, 2010

At this point, InGoal Magazine may just have to consider re-naming the weekly awards after Boston Bruin’s standout Tim Thomas. No point in even pretending to add suspense to this week’s awards, as chosen by our readers, because Thomas dominated the poll almost as much as he’s been dominating NHL shooters so far this season. The only thing in doubt was who would finish second and third in fan voting for their play over the past week … First Star: Tim Thomas, Boston Bruins: Thomas earns his second straight weekly award after finishing an almost ridiculously good month of October with two straight shutouts – one in Toronto and another in Ottawa – in his only starts this week. Thomas will have to clear some space on the trophy case as the NHL’s monthly award is sure to follow after he went 6-0-0 in October with a mind-boggling .984 save percentage, and a 0.50 goals-against average that is the lowest in the expansion era (1967-68) through six games. He also tied the Bruins’ record for the fastest start, matching Tiny Thompson’s six-game perfection streak some 73 years earlier. In the process, the 36-year-old has quieted a lot of critics who wondered if his Vezina Trophy win two seasons ago was a one-off after he lost the starting job to impressive rookie Tuukka Rask last season. Turns out it was...

Jhonas Enroth’s Portland Pirates and Buffalo Sabres Mask

One of InGoal’s closest supporters who sends us regular tips on new masks has done it again. Probably the biggest collector of game-worn masks, this anonymous supporter of InGoal and mask-artists recently dropped us a line with this fantastic mask. Created by David Leroux, who has displayed his work here before – most notably his mask for Tampa’s Cedrick Dejardins – The Portland/Buffalo mask for Entroth is another in a line of hybrid masks – designed for the goalie who is likely to play in both the NHL and AHL in any given year. We’ve always been big fans of Leroux’s bold graphics and skilled craftsmanship and this mask is no exception. What do you think? Drop us a line in the comments or go hit that Twitter button so other Buffalo and Portland fans can have a look. To see more of David’s great work please visit his web...

InGoal Exclusive: Jose Theodore’s new Minnesota mask

As sad as InGoal Magazine will be to see Jose Theodore’s temporary “Mummy” mask disappear before Halloween, the new Minnesota Wild backup has good reason to switch it out. And as happy as InGoal was to be the first to bring you pictures of Theodore’s taped-up temp, it’s with even greater pleasure that we debut the replacement. Painted by  legendary Minnesota-based painter Todd Miska – a first for Theodore – the new lid offers a unique combination of the former Hart- and Vezina-Trophy winning goaltender’s former masks in Montreal, Colorado and Washington. (Miska also painted the Friday the 13th mask that now appears in the banner above). Theodore’s last mask with the Canadiens featured Gargoyles perched on a brick wall on either side, a reference to their guardian, or gatekeeper, status that has also long been featured on the masks of current Chicago Blackhawks No.1 Marty Turco. When he moved to Colorado, the Gargoyles stayed, but their wings were iced over. After signing in Washington, they were replaced appropriately by bald eagles. Now Theodore is in Minnesota, a late signing Oct. 2 after scheduled backup Josh Harding blew out his knee in a preseason crease crash, and the Gargoyles are back – sort of. Replacing the bald eagles on the new mask is the animal-shaped head of the Minnesota Wild logo (the franchise has never clarified if it’s a bear...
