Star comedians Steve Carell and Tom Green talked about their love of hockey, the goaltending position, and Henrik Lundqvist and Jonathan Quick – and we've got video.

Steve Carell and Tom Green are comedians. They're also hockey fans. And on Green's AXS TV show "Tom Green Live", they talked about hockey – and more specifically, the goaltending position (which Carell played growing up in Massachusetts and in college at Denison University in Ohio).

In a 2007 interview with THN, I asked Carell about his love of hockey. Here's one of the highlights:
