Q: Describe your goaltending style.
A: It’s more of a hybrid style. I kind of steal stuff from everybody to a certain extent. I look at goalies, I’m a student of the game, I love the game. I’m going to look at [Henrik] Lundqvist play. I’m going to look at [Roberto] Luongo play. I look at Patrick Roy or Domenik Hasek or [John] Vanbiesbrouck or name it. And if I see something that I really like in what they do and I think it’s really effective, I’ll go out and I’ll try to put it in my game. ... I’m learning every day. This year, I probably changed more little things that probably nobody would notice.
Q: What have you picked up from Lundqvist?
A: A little bit about the way he puts his gloves up. When a guy comes on you in different angles, he’s holding his glove a certain way that I never understood really why, and I looked at him in shootouts, and nobody could ever beat him on that side for whatever reason. So I went in practice and I was holding the glove in similar fashion, not for breakaways, for a different reason, I was getting beat a lot in certain shots.
