Madeleine Bianchi - here we go and the game begins!
«HOCKEY IS AN ART.
IT REQUIRES SPEED, PRECISION AND STRENGHT LIKE OTHER SPORTS,
BUT IT ALSO DEMANDS AN EXTRAORDINARY INTELLIGENCE TO DEVELOP A LOGICAL SEQUENCE OF MOVEMENTS,
A TECHNIQUE WITCH IS SMOOTH, GRACEFUL AND IN RHYTHM WITH THER REST OF THE GAME.»
JACQUES PLANTE - legendary goaltender of the MONTREAL CANADIENS.
With his «HABS» he won the STANLEY CUP six times; thereby 5 successive wins!
He was considered to be one of the most important innovators in ice hockey.
MADELEINE BIANCHI - This BLACK DISK, that I throw, is known as PUCK!
It consists of HARD RUBBER and weighs 170 g ( 6 oz).
Shots of TOP ICE HOCKEY PLAYERS reach MAXIMUM SPEEDS up to 180 km/h, i.e 110 mph!
OUCH! No wonder that JACQUES PLANTE said:
«ONLY A GOALIE CAN APPRECIATE WHAT A GOALIE GOES THROUGH!»
