Peter Budaj may be a back-up goalie for the Canadiens, but his goalie mask is second to none.
Ned Flanders from The Simpsons? Check. The Three Storms wizards from Big Trouble in Little China? Check. Lightning bolts? Check. What else could you possibly ask for?
This beauty was featured by In Goal Magazine (with a hat tip to The Big Lead) and is designed by Dave Gunnarson, who also created Jason LaBarbera's tribute to Pat Tillman. The mask was supposed to incorporate the wizards from Big Trouble, Flanders and the Canadiens' color scheme all into one bundle.
Each side of the mask features one of the wizards, but the back of the mask has the Simpsons' mild-mannered neighbor re-imagined as one of the Storms.
The coolest part? The lightning bolts painted on are glow in the dark.
