InGoal Radio Podcast Episode 40: Chris Osgood
In this Episode of the InGoal Radio Podcast presented by The Hockey Shop Source for Sports , we sit down with three-time Stanley Cup champion Chris Osgood for a lengthy chat that includes insights on everything from scoring a goal, to playing for Scotty Bowman and Kenny Holland, to with Dominik Hasek, fighting Patrick Roy, and why he was the last goalie to wear the helmet and cage combo. You won’t believe the answer to that last one, and you won’t want to miss his thoughts on being asked by Mike Babcock to hold a clipboard and scout face-offs as the backup late in his career with the Red Wings.
Now a Detroit broadcaster and youth coach, it says here Osgood should have been in the Hall of Fame long before now for a career that includes 401 NHL wins, but for now we’ll happily settle for this Hall of Fame interview with him.
We take a break from the Hockey Shop for the gear segment this week, but not from Cam, who instead grabs Bauer’s Spencer Freer to take us behind the scenes from Bauer World at a secret location in Miami, an annual gathering of top retailers that has become known as the Stark Expo of the goalie world.
