Roloson Making a Place in History

From Damian Cristodero at the St. Petersberg Times:

One would think if an NHL player was being mentioned with one of the all-time greats, he would at least take some notice.

But Lightning goaltender Dwayne Roloson said he doesn’t read the sports section and doesn’t turn on the television much, either.

“So, to be honest with you,” he said Monday, “I have no inkling what you’re talking about.”

Did he want to know?

“No,” he said, “I don’t want to hear it.”

But it is worth mentioning.

Roloson’s eight straight playoff victories tie him with Hall of Famer Jacques Plante, who did it in 1969 with the Blues, for most by a goalie 40 or older. Roloson needs two more wins, not necessarily in a row, to tie former Red Wings goalie Dominik Hasek for most in a playoff season by those goalies of a certain age.
