Some NHL goalies are great and others are intriguing, but a dozen of them are legends because they're both. In Between the Pipes , Randi Druzin profiles these athletes, revealing the traits that make each one unique.

Gump Worsley defied the laws of biomechanics by being nimble despite having a cabbage-shaped body. He was also one of the funniest men ever to start in goal. Glenn Hall used to wrestle with a trainer in the dressing room before games and Jacques Plante refused to stay at a particular Toronto hotel. Despite their quirks, these 12 goalies are among the best the game has ever seen. With wit and verve, Druzin paints unforgettable portraits of these masked mavericks.
