Albany River Rats Alum/ Stanley Cup Finals Starting Goaltender

So here are a pair of hockey photos from the 2007-08 Albany River Rats. I post them because they feature Michael Leighton, who is currently goaltending for the Philadelphia Flyers in the Stanley Cup Finals. I hate the Flyers just about as much as I hate the Yankess, so I can't root for him, so I figured I'd post these instead.The first is just a shot of him turning aside a shot with his blocker. The second is him preparing to defend against a penalty shot by Graham Mink. It was two seasons ago, but I'm fairly certain he stopped Mink's shot. I was fortunate enough to meet Leighton and have him sign 8 x 10 prints of each.
