Strong in the nets

Last night’s game featured perhaps the best goaltending, combined, I have seen all season. It’s not a stretch to say that Jonathan Quick had his best game of the season, and Roberto Luongo, as he usually does, just showed tremendous calm and patience. Watching him, Luongo gives you the feeling that you’re going to have to do something special to beat him, and you can’t say that, consistently, about a lot of goalies. Here’s what Terry Murray thought of the goalie play…

MURRAY: “Luongo was very good, very sharp. That’s why he’s one of the premier guys in the league. But at the other end, we were very pleased with our goaltender too. That was a real battle. I think there was a lot of motivation there, on Quick’s side of it, when you play against Luongo. It was a good goaltending situation tonight.”
