José Artwork Made for Me

A few weeks ago a young woman from Italy contacted me through my goalies blog. She enjoyed my blog :) and wanted to share her artwork with me. And when she found out José was my favorite, she made these for me. She calls them digital sketches. I call them AWESOME!! :)
Thanks so much, Simona!! Her other artwork and photographs can be seen here.

Video from the March 3, 2011 game, Wild vs. Rangers

I've been looking back through José's season in Minnesota, and the other night I wanted to watch one of his games, so I watched the March 3, 2011 game against the Rangers (I have NHL Gamecenter, so I can watch any game from the past 5 seasons in their archive.)

José had such a great game that night and saved 40 of 41 shots. After that game his record in his last 10 games at Madison Square Garden was 9-0-1.

I asked a friend of mine who has better software to record a few of my favorite parts, so I'll share them here.

And of course we don't know what José said to Backstrom when he went over to the bench, but he obviously thought it was funny. I don't know that I'd ever seen Backstrom GIGGLE before. ;) And the look on José's face was priceless.
