Anyway - here's an "oldie but goodie," ladies!!
Patrick Lalime is currently the back-up goalie for the Buffalo Sabres, but he's had a long career in the NHL beginning with being drafted in 1993 by the Pittsburgh Penguins - 6th round, 156th overall (that's reason enough for me to have a soft spot for him!)!!
And here's another reason -- he's recorded two NHL fights (2001-2002, 2003-2004) earning a leaving the crease and game misconduct penalties for both and even though, from what I've read, he's not the winner in either, you gotta give the guy props for fighting in the first place -- he's a goalie!!
So I had to see for myself and did some searching on YouTube. It seems to me that it was a pretty even fight for this one (decide for yourself; it's about 1:00 minute in, but by all means - watch the whole video - it's one of hockey's greatest displays of fights since practically all of both teams are involved!!):
But all of this aside, he's a great goalie and a great back-up to Ryan Miller for the Sabres since signing with them this past July. CLICK HERE to see a spectacular save of Lalime's yesterday against Ray Whitney of the Carolina Hurricanes!
Did I mention he's good-looking?!! ; )
