Pohl & Legace Have Faced Adversity

from the Globe and Mail (Tuesday edition),

Toronto Maple Leafs rookie John Pohl has never faced St. Louis Blues goaltender Manny Legace in a National Hockey League game, but the two underdogs should feel a kinship when they share the ice tonight….
Pohl and Legace, who turned 34 on Sunday, have turned in tales of perseverance in their careers. Legace starred for Canada at the 1993 world junior championship, and Pohl was Minnesota’s Mr. Hockey in 1998 and an All-American at the University of Minnesota in 2002, but they had difficulty breaking into the NHL.
