That is exactly what San Jose Sharks’ goaltender Antti Niemi is a part of.
Since becoming a full-time NHL netminder with the Chicago Blackhawks last season, all Niemi has done is win whether it is in the regular season or when it matters most, the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
For the second straight season, Niemi has led his club to the Western Conference Finals, giving his team a chance to get to the Stanley Cup Finals. This season, he’ll be facing off against Roberto Luongo, a guy he beat soundly last season when the Blackhawks knocked out the Canucks in the second round in last year’s postseason.
