“Part of the process of being a top-end goalie is dealing with issues from the shoulders up. Right now, he’s letting different things affect him, and that’s part of the maturity process. It’s not uncommon with goalies. Steve has a burning desire to be the best, but sometimes you forget there’s a process you must go though to be the best.”
– Columbus goalie coach Dave Rook on Steve Mason, who has an .883 save percentage and 3.51 goals-against average on the season.
