Goaltending is hockey's ultimate high-pressure position. No player on the ice carries more weight on his shoulders to play virtually mistake-free hockey than the man behind the mask. That is especially true in Sweden's Elitserien, which has become of one of the lowest-scoring leagues in the hockey world. This season, the highest-scoring team in the league, AIK Stockholm, has averaged a modest 2.75 goals per game, while the stingiest defensive team, first-place Lulea HC, has allowed just 98 goals through 51 games (1.92 per game). The worst defensive team, last-place Timra IK, has allowed 3.29 goals per game.With goals being so scarce in Elitserien, the league's goalies bear enormous responsibility to stop everything they can see and have a chance to reach. The team that scores first usually wins and it is tough to recover from a single "soft" goal. While this is true in any league in the world, Elitserien is among the toughest for a team to successfully play comeback hockey.
