This week's goalie mask street fight brings us 'skin & bones' (who made it rain pain down on Jason Labarbera) against the Ginger Jesus (who dusted off poor Bobby Essensa with ease). I expect nothing short of line brawls, ejections and perhaps an errant Weber-Zetterberg head smash.

Bios are available at the links above if you want to check them out. Otherwise let's hop to it:

Bromley Mask Gallery: Bromley was 5'10'' and weighed between 140-160 lbs. In short, he was "skin and bones." Hence the bones nickname and his mask design speaks for itself and stands out, according to a goalie mask book by The Hockey News, as one of the greatest masks of all time. [1] [2] [3]

Schneider Mask Gallery: Schneider has had four designs: the first combined the Moose and Canucks logos which he modified slightly in his second season. At the beginning of the 2010-2011 season he rolled out a new design to honor the franchise's 40th anniversary (video for why this design here) but at some point during the Canucks/Sharks third round series he took a shot off the mask which rendered it unusable so he flipped to a Curt Ridley-esque design and then this summer he unveiled another one with more logo montages and a small tribute for Rick Rypien.
