Henrik Lundqvist will retain the “King” moniker as long as he’s around, so we’ll have to try a little harder than a play on music royalty when it comes to finding a nickname for Elvis Merzlikins.
(We should probably take a blanket approach to trying harder with sports nicknames, but we won’t worry about that right now.)
Merzlikins’ play of late — he recorded his third shutout in four outings Saturday — is driving a serious playoff push from the Columbus Blue Jackets and reinforcing the notion that, collectively, we don’t know jack when it comes to goaltending.
Much ink has been spilled in recent years over the unpredictability of goaltending, but this season is taking it to another level.
