Kim St. Pierre Tends Goals For Habs Pratice


Recommended Posts

I just seen on T>S.N. that Kim St. Pierre was in goal for the Habs practice while Price is recovering from the flu.

I don't know how to link ,so this is what is said.

"MONTREAL - Kim St-Pierre has made another breakthrough - playing in goal at a Montreal Canadiens practice.

The 29-year-old goaltender for Canada's national women's team was called in when goalie Carey Price missed practice for a second straight day with a flu.

She was on the ice for the full 90 minutes and did not look out of place as the NHL players fired pucks at both her and back-up goalie Jaroslav Halak through a succession of drills.

Some players took some speed off their shots early on, but Alex Kovalev whistled a wrist shot past her ear and Francis Bouillon nearly got her in the mask with a slapshot.

"I'm so glad I came because it was such an experience," said St-Pierre. "It's so different.

"They're so powerful. Their quick release is amazing. I wasn't scared. I was just so into it. It was my dream to play in the NHL and now I know it's not possible, but just to practice with them is something to cherish."

St-Pierre is a two-time Olympic gold medallist who plays for the Montreal Stars of the National Women's Hockey League. In 2003-04, she played for McGill University's men's varsity team and became the first woman goalie to win a regular season CIS game in a 5-2 victory over Ryerson on Nov. 15, 2003"

I didn't know Carey had the flu. :blink::blink::blink:

well i know they had a goalie on those lesson shows they have on RDS (forgot what they're called sorry) i'm assuming it was her (i'm pretty sure it was actually) so maybe after seeing her and since price is sick they decided to call her in for a practice. i heard her on the radio on the way home from work and she said she was super excited and she really really wanted to stop Kovalev but that he was too quick and sharp lol she also said she'ld have a next time so she could hopefully stop it then. I bet that was the experience of a life time!
