Some NHL goalies are great and others are intriguing, but a dozen of them are legends because they're both. In Between the Pipes, Randi Druzin profiles these athletes, revealing the traits that make each one unique.
Gump Worsley defied the laws of biomechanics by being nimble despite having a cabbage-shaped body. He was also one of the funniest men ever to start in goal. Glenn Hall used to wrestle with a trainer in the dressing room before games and Jacques Plante refused to stay at a particular Toronto hotel. Despite their quirks, these 12 goalies are among the best the game has ever seen. With wit and verve, Druzin paints unforgettable portraits of these masked mavericks.
