Goalies Under Barrage

from Sports Illustrated,
We knew goaltenders would get the worst end of this deal. The NHL wants more scoring, so it opens up the ice, cracks down on obstruction, and chops away at the amount of padding the goalies can use to protect their nets. Everyone -- well, everyone not wearing a mask -- is happy, especially the goaltenders' psychiatrists, whose workload has increased now that they must talk their clients off the ledge on a more frequent basis. "It's just the mental challenge after games and after weeks or months after some seemingly bad games," Stars goalie Marty Turco said this week during an NHL conference call. "There's just nights that I've actually felt like I've played well and let in four or five goals. You just have to let it go."
