Goaltending beats top notch scoring anytime!
Goaltending is to hockey like putting is to golf. It really has no relationship to the rest of the game.
Goaltending is a suffering position. Your equipment protects you from injury, but not from pain, every time you go out there. And if you allow a goal, the red lights go on for everyone to see. But you get to be a hero too!
There is no position in sport as noble as goaltending.
What pitching is in a short series in baseball, goaltending is in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
