Quack, Quack, Quack - A Trio of Goalies to Choose from for the Playoffs

In the words of Bruce Boudreau, "We’re in position with three good goalies. I don’t think I can screw it up too bad whoever I choose.” How would you like to be a SCP coach, and have this trio of goalies as a luxury.  This does not even include Victor Fasth who started the season with the Ducks.

Ducks can't overcome early deficit in loss to Preds

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- To put it simply, it was an ugly, brutal loss. The No. 1 goaltender gave up four goals in less than two periods and was forced to come back out on the ice in the third.
