Since the departure of Andy Moog, the Bruins have gone through a *lot* of goalies -- I can easily come up with 20 off the top of my head -- and this means we've seen a lot of Bruins-themed masks. I thought it would be interesting to post a few images and a poll to see which ones people like best. So, here are a bunch of masks, in no particular order:
Andy Moog's Bruin mask- this is a classic, and could be seen in Dallas Stars colors after he packed up and left or the lone star state - even though that didn't make a ton of sense.
Jon Casey's blue bear mask 1993-94:
Vincent Riendeau, another five-minute Bruin, with a nagging hip flexor problem, I believe... never been a fan of the helmet-masks:
Jess Hackett's classic mask, with his team du jour:
Two of Timmy's, and I'm sure you know what the original looks like:
Blaine Lacher's mask may have been the only thing that got him ice time that sophomore season...
This is Scott Bailey's, and I don't know WTF it is, but its eyes creep me out:
Craig Billington didn't last long:
Jon Grahame had a decent mask -- too bad they had to score 7 goals if they wanted to win when he was in net:
Lord Byron had a great mask, awesome pads, etc (and I watched him figh Patrick Lalime, which was fun):
Hannu's time here was brief, but his mask was cool:
Steve Shields' Cheevers tribute was awesome:
Andrew Raycroft #1:
Raycroft numero dos:
Kay Whitmore had another one too, but I opted to post the cooler one:
Felix the Cat's mask in black 'n gold:
Cheevers: a classic.
Here's one of Bill Ranford's from the mid-90s:
I've excluded severeal - either because they were plain (see John Blue), or I couldn't find a picture of their mask from when they were playing for the Bruins (Jim Carey, etc.) - if you can find 'em, post 'em!
