Kevin Weekes of CBC ranks the NHL team goaltending this week…
1. BOSTON BRUINS Timmy Thomas is well, Timmy Thomas! Tuukka Rask is awesome in his role and has a great attitude. What more can you ask? He’ll be a stud whenever he gets his chance to be Numero Uno.
5. SAN JOSE SHARKS Antti Niemi is back in a big way. I loved his dominant game against his former Stanley Cup champion team Chicago Blackhawks last week. Thomas Greiss has been nice when called on. He looks very smooth with his movement in the net and reminds me of Johan Hedberg.
15. CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS Corey Crawford paid his dues in the AHL. He’s a good goalie but has a tendency to get stuck a bit behind the play. Ray Emery has embraced his role and given the Hawks seven out of 10 points in games he’s started. I still have to give the Oilers props for beating them 9-2 on Hockey Night In Canada.
17. DETROIT RED WINGS Howard has turned his game up nicely and gives his max effort on every play, very underrated goalie. Ty Conklin can play when called upon.
