Latest Tomas Vokoun Items
If there's one thing that the Nashville Predators have been known for through just over 1,000 NHL games, it's goaltending. That chain started with Tomas Vokoun.
Martin Brodeur, the best goaltender in the world: It sounds so right because it was so true for most of the past decade. Dominik Hasek and Patrick Roy were in the argument, too, and Roy might be the only goalie in the modern era to challenge Brodeur for the title of best in NHL history.
It wasn't Tomas Vokoun's worst game of the season. But three Charmin-soft goals — by his own admission — were enough for the veteran goaltender to assume blame for the Washington Capitals' 5-3 loss to the New York Islanders on Saturday night. Vokoun made 30 saves on 34 shots and at times was very solid. But when he wasn't, it cost the Caps dearly.
The New York Islanders were stuck in the kind of losing funk that Bruce Boudreau knew was going to end in breakout fashion. But when his Washington Capitals jumped out to a two-goal lead Saturday, he thought the turnaround wouldn't come in this game.
The first goal Tomas Vokoun allowed was a bad one. He admitted as much. The second was a rebound goal after he made the first stop. The third? Vokoun said he never saw it.
Even the day after the Capitals' seven-game, season-opening winning streak ended, there were smiles and plenty of positivity around a first-place team that knew it just ran into some tough breaks and a hot goaltender.
Brooks Laich was very clear about what it would take for the Washington Capitals to beat the Vancouver Canucks.
The end of the Washington Capitals' seven-game winning streak to start this season came Thursday night in an odd game that featured a lot of penalties and fine play by Edmonton Oilers goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin.
Somehow, Roberto Luongo might simultaneously own the label of best goaltender in the world and most criticized goaltender in the world.
