Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette,
“Bank robbery,” Marc Poulin says, hopefully in jest, “is still in planning.” On Poulin’s kitchen table in Lachine are probably 15 masks he could use for a heist. Sadly, he’d probably not get far - it wouldn’t be hard to find a fleeing Ken Dryden, Terry Sawchuk, Eddie Giacomin or Gerry Cheevers with a sack of loot in his fist.
For the past three years, Poulin has used his hands and imagination to produce dozens of styles of vintage fibreglass goalie masks, painstakingly detailed masterpieces of a bygone NHL.
Upon close inspection of his work, you marvel at the courage of the men who wore the genuine article. And the guts of those before them who had lumbered barefaced and scarred into action.
