Glass slipper fits Antti Niemi

Joe Connor, Pennsville, N.J.

I just finished the Antti Niemi article in the June 7 issue of THN.

That guy is hands-down the Cinderella story of the 2009-10 season.

A short time ago, Niemi’s riding a Zamboni and pushing a mop just to make ends meet. Now he's holding Lord Stanley’s Cup up on high.

Congrats to Niemi and the rest of the club and their fans.
