Wrestlemania 27 last night, in my opinion, gets a 5 out of 10. It had such promise and ultimately failed to deliver. Most surprising moment of the night? Snooki doing backflips like an accomplished gymnast. Most disappointing moment of the night? A 30 minute snoozefest between Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole.

But you're not here for wrestling. You're here for hockey (well minus Colton Orr when it is a lot like wrestling). Here's some for you.

James Reimer Has Faith in His Game - James Mirtle from the Globe and Mail

In a position where the mental side of the game is more important than anything, Reimer said he feels his religious background is a big reason why he has been able to cope with the day-to-day stress of playing goal in the NHL.

"It’s a big reason why I’m calm out there," he said. "I mean, I don’t have any fear of what’s going to happen. The way I see it, or tell myself, if I let in zero or six, it’s His call up there. It’s whatever He wants in my life. It helps to calm it down and put everything in perspective."

Players’ religion has never been much of a focal point in professional hockey, as the NHL is likely the most secular of the major professional sports.
