2010-11 NHL Goalies YouTube Videos

I've been trying my hand at YouTube videos, and here's the result. I shouldn't really call them videos, because they are technically more like slideshows. I gathered photos of all 60 NHL goalies, mainly focusing on their masks and pads and put them together in these 2 videos.

I'm not very technically savvy, and this was a struggle for me, so don't judge too harshly. And I couldn't use the songs I originally wanted to, because of YouTube copyright rules. So these would not be the songs I would've chosen had I been able to choose from all songs, but these will do. They just aren't real "hockey-like." ;o)

Part 1 has goalies from Anaheim through Minnesota, then part 2 is Montreal through Washington. Enjoy! And I apologize to Red Wings fans...I misspelled Red Wings in the Howard slide. :( I'd spent too much time with them already and didn't give them the proper proofreading. Hopefully that was the only mistake...

Robin Lehner 2010-11 Mask

Robin Lehner of the Ottawa Senators (born July 24, 1991 in Gothenburg, Sweden.)

Lehner made appearances in two games early in the season (a total of 34 minutes so far.) But that's enough to make the site!

From The Goalie Guild: "The left side features an oversized Ottawa Senator logo with the red and black flag flapping in the wind behind him. The right side features the “SENS” font logo running bottom-left to top-right. The final touch was the red Three Crowns of Team Sweden on top of another white and red flag and Lehner’s number 40 on the chin. All the graphics have a great 3d smoking effect. The backplate features the flags of Sweden and Canada and a tribute to Lehner’s best friend."











Mike McKenna 2010-11 Mask

Mike McKenna of the New Jersey Devils (born April 11, 1983 in St. Louis, MO.)

McKenna was called up and has played one game on 11/20/10 so far.
Edit on 12/3/10: McKenna has now played in 2 games. He came in for 58 minutes of the game against Montreal on 12/2/10. With Brodeur still injured, he might be getting some more playing time. I found out today that he played right here in Springfield, IL for the Jr. Blues in 1999-2000.

 The Goalie Guild describes his mask as his “Liberty and Prosperity” mask from Daveart Designs. Both sides feature smoking New Jersey Devils’ logos over red, black, and white racing stripes (McKenna is a big racing fan). Very hard to notice, but all over the mask are tiny, almost holographic Devils’ logos that add a very unique twist to the mask. The words “Liberty” and “Prosperity” (New Jersey’s state motto) sandwich the year number “1776″ for a little patriotism on the chin. The black cat-eye cage fits well, while the backplate features a little white cartoon character with a halo with a checkered and American flag behind him."
