Greatest Photos In Hockey History
#3 Jacques Plante's Goalie Mask

By becoming the first goalie to regularly wear facial protection, Jacques Plante literally changed the face of hockey.

Which makes this photo even more amazing - not only does it capture the epic moment as it happened, but it shows exactly why it happened.

The story of Plante's mask has been told a 1000 times. This photo tells it all, as they say, without a single word.
