VIDEO: 15 things you didn't know about the world's greatest goalie

Poor Len Canayen here, with a nice little video to get you thinking hockey as you digest your Easter Sunday dinner. Yes, the NHL playoffs are in full swing, and the series between the Montréal Canadiens and the New York Rangers is tied at 1 game each. Game three is at Madison Square Gardens -- that's what "MSG" stands for, by the way -- starting at 1900 EDT.

Tonight's game promises to be another duel between two of the NHL's top goaltenders -- Hendrik Lundqvist of the Broadway Blueshirts and, of course,
the Habs' Carey Price, arguably the best goalie in the world. Don't take my word for it though. About three minutes into this video you can see the impressive haul of silverware he collected at the end of the 2014-15 season.

Carey Price didn't play most of the 2015-16 season due to injuries, but appears to be back in form this year, which is why I call the Canadiens to vanquish the Ranger (in six games) and go on to win... errr... more games. (Lifetime pct .992.)

Too bad Canadian sports fans won't be able to see tonight's match-up without paying Robbers to see it on the premium channel. May the gods of hockey curse both the Canadian Broadcorping Castration and the National Hockey League (G. Bettman, Prop.) for deciding that the CBC's latest remake of Anne of Green Gables and its ludicrous "history" series The Story of Us (Indians) are more important to viewers than Canada's Team. Shame on them.
