Afternoon Line- Kevin Paul Dupont

The brief glimpse of the heroic Holtby, preserving a 3-2 win, was an express ticket back to the time when goalies succeeded based on their skill to save pucks rather than block pucks. Which is not to diminish the work of today’s stout-hearted keepers. But it is yet another reminder that style and equipment have robbed the game of some of its most thrilling, Keystone Kop moments.

Holtby’s save will be talked about for years. The Lords of the Boards might want to think that through a little bit. A few tweaks in goalie equipment and what they can and cannot do to defend their space would expand the game’s treasure of memories.
