When Rinne is on his game, he is catching the puck in front of his body. I have rarely seen a goalie catch the puck so far out in front of his body. Hard enough to get the glove up in position to catch the puck but to get it out in front of the body like he does is truly amazing. That's when he's in a groove and at his best. Rinne has a weakness and it's over his shoulders, especially stick side. I noticed Chicago going after that last season. When he drops to his knees he leaves that open and if you've got skilled shooters they can hit the top shelf on him.

Lindback, for a young goalie, does not lose his composure easily. He's given up a few softies early in games yet keeps his head about him and battles back like nothing happened. That's a great trait to have as a goalie. Once the puck has gone in you have to move and be ready for the next shot and he appears to do that pretty well.
