Three Goalie Stars for October 18, 2010

This is the second week for our three stars segment and this time you the readers made the selection. In a poll that ran for Sunday only, we began with six InGoal suggestions, received two write in votes from readers and after a pile of Twitter and blogging campaigning by fans are now able to reveal our winners for the week between Oct. 10 and 17! Would Tomas Vokoun’s back-to-back shutouts, including one over state rival Tampa Bay and a potent Lightning attack be enough to top the list … 1. First Star: Michal Neuvirth, Washington Capitals. Taking full advantage of the early season injury to expected No.1 Semyon Varlamov, the 22-year-old Neuvirth was a perfect 3-0 in three starts last week, allowing just five goals in wins over Ottawa, the New York Islanders, and Nashville. After splitting decisions the week before, Neuvirth posted a .947 save percentage in the three victories. 2. Second Star: Anders Lindback, Nashville Predators. Another 22-year-old rookie, Lindback’s only loss in his first week as an NHL starter was in overtime to Neuvirth and the offensively dynamic Capitals. The 6-foot-6 Swede took over after Nashville’s 6-foot-5 No.1, Pekka Rinne, was injured in a crease collision in the season opener – and yes, the Predators do have almost 13 feet of goalie tandem this season – and stopped 23 of 25 in a win over rival...

Cory Schneider pays homage to Canucks with new mask

Update: This mask was broken in practice during the playoffs – Schneider has a sharp new retro look – and we have lots of photos plus a video here. Have you seen InGoal – the online Magazine? [wpfblike] It’s too bad Cory Schneider seems destined to sit on the bench behind Roberto Luongo most of the season, because the Vancouver Canucks’ highly touted young backup is sporting a new mask that deserves a much bigger spotlight. With his first full NHL season a certainty after signing a one-way contract this summer following three years in the American Hockey League,...

Thrashers Pavelec out of hospital after collapsing on ice

Atlanta goaltender Ondrej Pavelec was released from hospital after two days of testing followed his scary on-ice collapse just 2:25 into the Thrashers’ season-opening game against the Washington Capitals on Friday night. “I want to thank all the doctors, trainers and emergency personnel who took such good care of me,” Pavelec said in a release from the team. “I would also like to thank my teammates, all the fans and everyone in the hockey community who have reached out to me and offered their support and well-wishes over the last few days.” According to the release preliminary tests of his heart and brain show Pavelec, who was rushed to hospital after failing to regain consciousness even as he was being taken off the ice on a stretcher, had a neurocardiogenic syncope episode. In layman’s terms, he had a fainting spell, though after watching him crumple to the ice and learning he was out between 11 to 13 minutes, most observers feared much worse for the 23-year-old. Pavelec did suffer a concussion when he hit his head on the ice as he fell backwards to the ice, and will undergo further testing to his heart, blood and genetics before being cleared to play. “I hope to be back in action as soon as possible,” Pavelec said. Free agent addition Chris Mason, who took over after Pavelec went down and made...

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...
