In the golden age of hockey, the net was a place of grace, agility and innovation. Goaltenders deflected and blocked with creativity, stickhandled with bold strokes and fearlessly faced a puck travelling at speeds of 100 miles an hour. And they took a beating. Some of these stars made their saves before the mask; others got their shut-outs without padded blockers or trappers. This is an exhilarating chronicle of the quiet guardians of the crease.
