A More Fit Halak

from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

Preparing for a more consistent campaign in 2011-12, Halak has addressed concerns the Blues had about his fitness with a productive summer of training that included drenching bike rides through the hills of his native Bratislava, Slovokia. But whether he’s better equipped to handle the ups and downs of an 82-game season, not even he knows that answer.

“I don’t think you can do anything to prepare yourself mentally,” Halak, 26, said. “The big thing is I went through it already, so now I know what to expect. It’s a big challenge, but I’m really looking forward to it.”
