Product Description & Reviews

A history of Rangers goalies through the ages! New York Rangers fans have always loved their goaltenders and, throughout their history, the Blueshirts have been blessed with some of the very best in the game. Through the first nine-plus decades of their existence, eighty-eight men from Canada, the United States, and Europe have toiled between the pipes at Madison Square Garden. They all shared the same responsibility, yet each brought their own style, personality, character, and idiosyncrasies to the position and provided unique memories for those of us who watched them.In Guardians of the Goal, each one of these brave men is discussed in chronological order, while providing an overview of their era and the general managers and coaches they played for. Such players highlighted in this book include:·         Mike Richter·         Ed Giacomin·         John Vanbiesbrouck·         Henrik Lundqvist·         Davey Kerr·         And many more.Regardless of whether they were a franchise goalie, a flash in the pan, or an emergency fill-in, each of these “Lone Rangers,” or as Steve Baker once called them, “The few, the proud, and the very busy,” have one thing in common: they all tried their best to keep that little one-inch by three-inch piece of frozen, vulcanized rubber out of the gaping twenty-four square foot chasm behind them. Some were more successful than others, but as you will see, although they may occasionally “steal” a game, in most cases a goaltender is only as good as the team in front of him.Guardians of the Goal is just that: an ode to those Blueshirts who laid it out night in and night out, leaving it all out on the ice for our Rangers.
