5. In the Crease: Goaltenders Look at Life in the NHL by Dick Irvin

ISBN 07710 4361-9 McClelland & Stewart , 1995

Noted hockey writer and broadcaster, Dick Irvin, interviewed NHL goaltending legends from the past and present to gain their perspectives of the game from in the crease. I enjoyed the way that Irvin allows the likes of Glen Hall, Gump Worsley, Patrick Roy and Martin Brodeur to talk about why they became goalies, who their heroes are and to share anecdotes about life on and off the ice for an NHL netminder. It seems that the reputation they have as being "different" and superstitious has some basis.
