Those Were The Days: Tony Esposito

Once again, the Stanley Cup playoffs are where heroes are made. Especially goaltending heroes. Look at Jonathan Quick and Tuukka Rask. And Colorado's Craig Anderson is stopping everything but global warming.

Back in 1972 Tony Esposito opined about what it is like to be a goalie in the playoffs.

"The pressure is unreal. Most of the goalkeepers, they feel the pressure. The only ones that don't worry are the ones too dumb to understand what's happening to them."
