NHL Goalies

Luongo leads by example after loss

“If it’s leadership you want, how about your star goalie appearing on the ice for practice 22 minutes before it officially starts the way Roberto Luongo did on Tuesday afternoon?

That, beating by 14 minutes the next Canuck (Mason Raymond) to step on to the ice surface at the Los Angeles Kings’ practice rink in an El Segundo industrial park near LAX, is par for the course for Luongo.”

Biron laying claim to starting goaltender spot

“For most of the season, the Philadelphia Flyers have rotated goaltenders Martin Biron and Antero Niittymaki, with the hope one would raise his game and claim the No. 1 spot for himself.”

“With his recent strong play, it seems like Biron has done just that. Since being pulled after allowing three goals in the first period of a game against Boston on Feb. 7, Biron has gone 6-2-0 with a 2.10 goals-against average, .944 save percentage and one shutout.”

LeNeveu saving more than just pucks this season

The program is called David LeNeveu’s Saves For Kids, a fundraiser that raises money for every save he makes this season, home or away.”

David Hutchison

David is one of the founders of InGoal Magazine which he began in 2009. Of course he finds time for some goaltending of his own as well, and despite his age, clings desperately to the idea that some NHL team will call him to play for them - though in his mid-forties (OK, late 40s) it'll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu and the shooter tutor has gone in for repairs.
