With the troubles of the CBA on top of us, we can all pause for a moment to reflect on the things in life that really matter. Like awesome goalie masks that we just want to see on the ice.
Matt Miska design has once again pulled through for Niklas Backstrom & Josh Harding of the Minnesota Wild. Harding's mask has an image of the Xcel Energy Center on one side of the mask, Target Field on the other, and an image of the
new 35W bridge Ford Parkway bridge on the back plate. If you remember, Harding had a back plate honoring the 35W bridge collapse at one time.
Backstrom's features what looks to be Battle Cat from the classic He-Man cartoons on the sides, and his tradition tip of the cap to his heritage on the back plate.
Take a few moments out of your day, and check out the joy that is the simple things in life. Stop and crush a beautiful rose beneath your feet so no one else can smell it. Tell kids the truth about Santa. Or, you know, just make the jump and check out the pictures of new goalie masks.
