Stat of the day

Actually saw this one on yahoo.com:

Steve Mason is the first goaltender to open his NHL career with three wins since Montreal’s Jaroslav Halak in February 2007.

Here is an interesting quote from Michael Peca from the same link:

“When a goalie exudes confidence, it trickles through your lineup. A young player can go two ways: they can be overwhelmed by the circumstances, or they’re just too young and naive to realize it, and they flourish. He certainly made some saves today that showed he’s flourishing from it.”—Blue Jackets center Michael Peca, commenting on rookie goaltender Steve Mason’s performance in three games since he was recalled from the minors.
