A must for any fan of great goaltending! This amazing DVD features the rare 1998 NHL Productions feature, "Masked Men: The Last Line of Defense", celebrating some of the greatest netminding performers and performances of all-time.

Segments include:
- Dominik Hasek's flirtation with brilliance with the Chicago Blackhawks in the 1992 Stanley Cup Finals vs. Pittsburgh, and his dominance during his first five seasons with the Buffalo Sabres;
- The contrasting legends of Martin Brodeur and Mike Richter;
- Old film of Jacques Plante and the first goalie mask;
- Offensive skills of goalies, including Glenn Hall carrying puck to mid-ice and passing to a winger for an assist, and goals scored by Billy Smith, Brodeur, Chris Osgood and Ron Hextall;
- 1970s superstars Billy Smith and Bernie Parent in old-school action;
- John Vanbiesbrouck's amazing playoff runs in 1986 with the New York Rangers, and 1996 with the Florida Panthers;
