i watch the game and montoya i though played pretty well. He saved many tough shots and also the easy ones. ALso i like his glove hand. I snapshot was shot and grabbed the puck out of the air, like he could do it blindfolded. Potter i saw some of him. The talked about how good he is and strong too. They also said he is rugged and mean. The rnagers need mean defencemen that is more defense than offsive and will TAKE THE BODY. I ALSO forgot he blockek and shot, hit him in the arm only out a shift or two and played through the pain
I watched most of the game too... I thought Montoya was terrific. Neither goal against was soft... the first was with Michigan State on the PP. A shot came in, Montoya made the save thru traffic, a scrum ensued in front of the crease, Montoya made another save, but then someone managed to chip it past him with him down. He wasn't perfect (he put a rebound into the crease) but he didn't pretty darn good. And the 2nd goal against he had zero chance against as his defense abandoned him after they went up by 3 goals late in the third.
Good game... and the first of his I've seen since I saw the WJC on TV last year....
i've heard that helminen looks real good but has had a little bit of bad luck finding the net so far...comiing back from injury and all though i wouldn't be too worried, sounds like he just needs to get his touch back
