Counting on the crease

Nolan Tallmadge, Lyndonville, Vt.

In your May 10 issue there was an interesting column by Ken Campbell about whether or not goaltending is as big as we think it is in the playoffs.

I finished reading it and immediately wondered if anyone is watching the Montreal Canadiens?

Jaroslav Halak has stood on his head and more. He is almost singlehandedly backstopping Montreal to a great playoff run.

He has pulled in several 50-plus-save games and is usually facing between 30 and 45 a night. And yet he still found the ability to turn most of them aside.

Kudos to Halak for proving that goaltending can be the difference between a win and a loss.
