LaBarbera finds comfort zone for Coyotes

GLENDALE, Ariz. Jason LaBarbera was gushing with a long-forgotten feeling Tuesday against the Los Angeles Kings. Confidence. Its gratifying to get that feeling again, said LaBarbera, who stopped 39 shots in a 3-1 win at Jobing.com Arena. Its been a while since Ive had that.

The Understudy knows all the parts: Jason LaBarbera

I wonder if Jason LaBarbera wakes up at 3AM and wonders about how he arrived where he is right now. He’s Mike Smith’s backup, and a goalie who’s been on both teams in the Western Conference finals.
