Blues goalie shows off his dedication with picture of broken cup
Being a goalie in the NHL is a terrifying proposition, as a puck can reach speeds of over 100 miles per hour when hurtling towards the net. And while it may seem that modern equipment is up to the task of protecting the goaltenders, Brian Elliot of the St. Louis Blues showed that sometimes equipment fails.
If a poll were taken of all NHL goalies about which piece of equipment they would least want to fail in the middle of a game, it seems like the protective cup would probably finish in first by a healthy margin.
