Goalie Pads

Right before the Olympic Break, Marty Biron spoke about a change that Henrik Lundqvist made with his equipment in early December.

Biron said, "Henrik and I used to talk about our gear a lot and a few months ago he decided to go with a lot lighter pads, it's a prototype that Bauer has got, they made it right for him and when I saw his equipment at Yankee Stadium and picked them up it seemed like it was at least a pound and a half lighter than the gear before.
