    The other goalie on my team bought a new glove, but they only had it in black in the shop, and he was feeling a little down about it because it wasn't matching his mostly white other white gear. Then I saw a pro goalie on TV with a black glove...and then another...and now you. Is this a "thing" now? Or just a string of coincidences?

    Darius Kasparaitis playing for Lithuania

    Speaking of Lithuania... looks like "Cold War 2" is in full swing 🙄

    Darius Kasparaitis playing for Lithuania

    No, sorry, you aren't Lithuanian 😕 I'm still waiting for the call from the Estonian team 😀 But a couple of goalies would have to get broken legs before I got the call I think 🤔 Actually, my son will try out for the Estonian U18 team this winter, we'll see how that goes. ....maybe they have an "Over40" team I could shoot for? 😋
  6. Congrats to Kasparaitis for finally playing with his native Lithuania team. He always played for USSR then Russia. To play for Lithuania, he had to jump thru some hoops to qualify after playing for another country. But at 45 he did it. So hats off to him. And Dianias Zubrus. To top it off, Lithuania just finished top of the Div.1B group, so they get promoted to Div.1A next year. Unforunately they had to beat Estonia in the Final game to do it (altho Estonia still had the best goaltending stats )The tourny was in Lithuania, place was packed. you can watch all the games on YouTube here http://wmib2018.iihf.hockey/en/news/king-kasparaitis/

    Mask Paint Job Review

    My cage sites extremely close on my mask (look at the pic where it was chipped). I don't think there is any room for a plastic tube or anything. But it's a good idea I guess. I have to find some very thin tube maybe.
  8. Don't be such a Dirty Sanchez...
  9. I've heard of "tossing the salad", but not sure what "salads over meat" means? I can't keep up with the kids these days...
  10. If I was gonna play it safe, I'd say Nashville and Tampa in the Finals. Altho Winnipeg and the Devils could be long horses to bet on. Bear in mind I hardly watched any NHL this season, and I don't think I ever correctly predicted a Cup winner. But there's always a first time for everything.

    Hiller out with head injury again :(

    Hiller got hit in the mask and went down in last night's playoff game and didn't start the 3rd period I was just reading Hiller has been plagued with many head injuries going back to 2011. Hopefully this doesn't trigger it again. He's been playing fairly well lately, and his current team (EHC Biel) just made the playoffs for the first time since 1990 (!) And just 2 games away from reaching the Finals, altho it looks like their wheels are starting to come off, not just Hiller, but other injuries and their opponent Lugano seems to be waking up now too (they have Merzlikins in net, who is also one of the best in the Swiss league right now) Anyway, here's a link to the video of Hiller getting hit (have to watch a 30 sec commercial first ) http://www.20min.ch/sport/dossier/nla/story/10123890

    Goalies Celebrating Team Goals

    I sub sometimes in a "recreational" league to get some extra ice time. There's no rankings or pressure or anything, just playing 2x 45min for fun basically. I've subbed for most of the teams there, so I've got to know everyone there. Last night I played against a team of guys I got to know pretty well, and a couple of times when they got a good goal on me, I was high-fiving and celebrating with them, hahaha I'm not sure what the team I was playing with thought of it, but I played a good game and we won 4-6, so I guess they were ok with it.

    Team Name: Funny or Serious?

    A "rink supplied name"? Jesus, what kind of Communist league are you playing in? Or is it like Repo Man, where all the teams just have a generic label on them?

    Mask Weight

    So far it looks like the typical mask weight is around 2.5 to 3.5 lbs. I'm actually surprised that my ReidiC is on the low end of the weight scale. I was always told that ABS masks are heavy and (high-end) carbon-fiber masks are light. But it looks like my ABS mask is equal or lighter weight than high-end carbon-fiber masks. Huh, interesting.
