Conklin Is Con-crete

If concrete moves like a Wildcat and can seal a six-foot by four-foot vertical opening practically airtight through sixty withering minutes enduring a barrage of six-ounce vulcanized rubber a total of forty-four times!

Ty made forty-three saves for the 4-1 Pittsburgh Penguin victory over the New York Rangers to remain undefeated in regulation and a stunning 10-0-1 since being called up in mid-December.

His 43 save effort, a career high in the NHL, will only add to the enormity of his 32.7 saves per game average and I'll update this post with his stunning stats when they are released in the morning.

*As it stands, Conklin maintains a 33.6 saves per game average and a 1.72 goals against. His .949 save percentage over 695 minutes is nearly unimaginable.

Some of the highlights of the game included Ty shutting down former Hockey East foes, Chris Drury (BU) and Greg Moore (Maine) - though Ty did not see time against either during his time as a Wildcat.

The Rangers couldn't slip one by until another former Penguin, future Hall of Famer, Jaromir Jagr, picked up his own rebound on a powerplay on the fortieth shot of the game.

Way to go Ty!

Go 'Cats!
