    More interesting hockey reading..................

    The NHL Playoffs are the biggest postseason tournament in which one player can have the most impact.

    A hot goaltender is something of hockey lore. And when a goalie heats up in the playoffs, it can quickly become a thing of legend.

    Look back to last season, and Jaroslav Halak had the Canadiens knocking on the door of the Stanley Cup Final. The Ducks know a thing about red-hot goaltending too, having gone to the final in 2003 and winning the Stanley Cup in 2007 on the back of Jean-Sebastien Giguere.

    And there doesn’t seem to be a shortage of candidates for this year’s hot goalie.

    Penguins netminder Marc-Andre Fleury was stellar in a 3-0 win over the Lightning, turning away 32 shots including a few saves while standing on his head.

    Buffalo’s Ryan Miller looked recovered from an upper-body injury and made 35 saves en route to a 1-0 upset of the Flyers in Game 1 of their first-round series Thursday.

    Also making headlines with his play was Canadiens goalie Carey Price, the guy they picked over Halak, who stopped 31 shots in a 2-0 win over the Bruins.

    Great goaltending and solid defense seems to be the early trend in the NHL postseason. Five of the first eight games have gone under and two others have pushed with 5-goal totals.

    Which goalie do you think has the potential to go “El Fuego” and carry his team the deepest in the playoffs?

    See the problem is, although last year we seen stellar performances, and goalies stealing many games. Look at the two goalies that ended up playing in the finals. Halak for example, stole 2 series for the habs last year. But in the end, goaltending can only do so much. Like we seen two goalies with a +4 GAA (not 100% on that, and don't feel like looking up stats ).. But anyway, to answer your question.. I'm hoping my boy Carey can get it down of course. But I wouldn't be suprised to see a Miller or Lundqvist steal the show, (1st round anyway).. As far as the west goes.. let's just hope Luongo can play up to his potential.
