Channeling Mom! Kaia Gerber Mimics Mom Cindy Crawford's 1992 VMAs Look

Channeling Mom! Kaia Gerber Mimics Mom Cindy Crawford's 1992 VMAs Look Like looking in a mirror! Kaia Gerber took a page out of her mother Cindy Crawford’s style book while celebrating her 18th birthday in New York City. Gerber stepped out on Friday, September 6, in an updated version of Crawford’s 1992 MTV Video Music Awards wardrobe. The 53-year-old supermodel wore a black, strappy, sheer top, black pants and black heels for the show 27 years ago. She finished her look off with teased half-up, half-down hair. Twinning Hollywood Mother-Daughter Duos That’ll Have You Doing a Style Double Take Crawford’s mini-me turned the ensemble into a lace top (featuring the black straps), leather skirt and over-the-knee, gladiator heels.

We can and do debate over who the best goaltender is. I wanted to look at team goaltending today and which teams I think will be better this year and which

Load management has become one of the hottest topics in the modern NHL, with teams looking for new ways to gain an advantage during the regular-season slog.

In 2018-19, we saw more teams shift toward a platoon between the pipes, and the need for multiple netminders who can handle a significant workload has never been greater.

With that in mind, here's a look at the NHL's top goaltending duos entering the 2019-20 campaign.

5. Jonathan Quick - Jack Campbell, Kings

When it comes to raw talent, few teams boast a stronger tandem in net than the Kings.

Canadian ice dance champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir announce retirement

Canadian ice dance champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir announce retirement After nearly two decades of dominance, Canadian ice dancers Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir are hanging up the skates. The pair announced their retirement in a video shared on both of their Twitter accounts. In the video, the Olympic champions were — as you may have guessed — skating around the rink they call home, smiling and holding each other close. “We’ve spent 22 years coasting around the outside of the rink, hanging out together, making programs, trying to soak up our sporting experience,” Moir said. “And after 22 years it feels like the right time to step away from the sport,” continued Virtue.

I know this video is long, (28 minutes). But, I think I did a good job with it, I fixed all the problems you guys were talking about in my previous videos.

30 teams, 30 back ups. Not all of them are created equal. Let me know what you guys and gals think in the comments below.

Quick struggled in 2018-19, but don't let one down year fool you. The two-time Stanley Cup champion posted a goals-against average of 2.45 or lower over his previous eight campaigns, and there's still plenty left in his tank.

Campbell, a 2010 first-round selection, is a highly touted netminder who finally put his bona fides on display last season. The 27-year-old posted a 2.30 goals-against average and a .928 save percentage over 31 games for a defensively weak Kings team.

Los Angeles will likely miss the playoffs for the second straight season, but the team's shortcomings won't come in goal.

4. Andrei Vasilevskiy - Curtis McElhinney, Lightning

Vasilevskiy is a safe bet to continue playing at an elite level after collecting his first career Vezina Trophy in 2018-19. The Russian won 39 of his 53 starts for the Lightning last season, losing consecutive games just once - and never in regulation.

Every NHL team’s deadliest duos

  Every NHL team’s deadliest duos While it’s true that it takes three forwards to make up a line in hockey, it’s becoming more and more common for two stud players to be paired together for that extra offensive impact. We went through each NHL team to find those two guys who make each other better and are a huge problem for opposing teams to deal with on the ice.

Dan Rosen answers Twitter questions, including which team has the best goaltending duo and players the Rangers could move at the Trade Deadline.

I'll go with Nashville' s duo of Pekka Rinne and Juuse Saros. Rinne has posted a .918 save percentage or better in three of the last four seasons and he just James Tanner. The best goaltending tandem in the NHL is Sergei Bobrovsky and his back up Korpisalo. A healthy Bobrovsky probably plays 65 or

The experienced McElhinney provides the team with a reliable second option to lean on while managing Vasilevskiy's workload.

McElhinney's career numbers don't exactly pop off the page, but the veteran has quietly been one of the league's steadiest backups over the last three seasons. The 36-year-old has notched 39 wins in 63 starts with a 2.51 goals-against average and .919 save percentage since the start of the 2016-17 campaign.

McElhinney also impressed with a strong postseason stint for the Carolina Hurricanes last spring. He allowed just nine goals over five playoff contests while posting a .930 save percentage.

3. Ben Bishop - Anton Khudobin, Stars

With Bishop leading the way, the Stars conceded the fewest goals in the Western Conference despite giving up over 30 shots per game in 2018-19. The 32-year-old Vezina Trophy finalist last season was outstanding, allowing 87 goals in 46 starts to significantly outperform his expected goals against of 105.22.

Why Maple Leafs’ Michal Neuvirth followed his heart to Toronto

  Why Maple Leafs’ Michal Neuvirth followed his heart to Toronto With the flip of calendar, Toronto has gone from too many backup candidates to scrounging for more. And veteran Michal Neuvirth is hoping to the Maple Leafs’ answer. The post Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame unveils class of 2019 appeared first on Sportsnet.ca.Because somebody will need to.

I look at all 30 teams in this one. Having watched a lot of hockey with the Centre Ice package, I have been impressed with the state of netminding in the

I'll go with Nashville' s duo of Pekka Rinne and Juuse Saros. Rinne has posted a .918 save percentage or better in three of the last four seasons and he just James Tanner. The best goaltending tandem in the NHL is Sergei Bobrovsky and his back up Korpisalo. A healthy Bobrovsky probably plays 65 or

When Bishop was out with an injury, Khudobin provided a reliable option in relief. The Russian collected 16 wins while posting a 2.57 goals-against average and a .923 save percentage over 37 starts.

The pair was also sensational when faced with top-quality scoring chances. Bishop led all goaltenders (minimum 1,000 minutes played) with a high-danger save percentage of .885, and Khudobin finished seventh at .850.

Even if Bishop stays healthy in 2019-20, the Stars can still lean on Khudobin to keep their starter fresh for another potential playoff appearance.

2. Pekka Rinne - Juuse Saros, Predators

The Predators finished in the top two in save percentage and top four in goals against in each of the past two seasons. With the same tandem protecting the crease in 2019-20, Nashville makes for a stingy opponent.

Saros could assume starting duties on a handful of NHL teams, but the 24-year-old has been stuck playing behind Rinne since debuting in 2015-16. The 5-foot-11 puck-stopper suffered back-to-back regulation losses on just two occasions in 2018-19, and his 17 wins over 27 starts were each career bests.

Dave Feschuk: Maple Leafs will have to keep looking out for No. 2

  Dave Feschuk: Maple Leafs will have to keep looking out for No. 2 If you were attempting to pinpoint where it all went wrong for the Maple Leafs last season, you could list off any number of possibilities. Why did they flounder down the stretch, finish third in the Atlantic Division, and lose another Game 7 in Boston last spring? Maybe William Nylander’s nonfactor of a season gets some votes. Maybe Auston Matthews missing 14 games to injury finds some support. Or you could make a case for Toronto’s less-than-stellar special teams, including an historically inept penalty kill.

Listen, I can't tell you unless I look at stats because I don't get enough coverage to notice any of the other teams, but people .GET OFF the Ducks bandwagon. Granted Bryz is decent but Giguere and Bryz were not the best Duo AT ALL.

The 36-year-old Rinne continues to stifle opponents during the latter stages of his career. The towering Finn has posted a goals-against average of under 2.50 in five consecutive seasons, and he ranks second in wins (178) since the start of the 2014-15 campaign.

1. Tuukka Rask - Jaroslav Halak, Bruins

Inking Halak to a two-year deal ahead of the 2018-19 campaign was easily the Bruins' most significant transaction that offseason. Adding the 34-year-old as a secondary option behind Rask made the team extremely difficult to beat.

Consequently, the Bruins allowed the third-fewest goals in the league last season, and the duo's combined nine shutouts also ranked third.

Of the four teams that finished with multiple 20-win goaltenders last season, Rask and Halak formed the only tandem still intact for 2019-20. Boston was also one of two clubs with both goalies posting a goals-against average below 2.50 (minimum 20 starts).

With Rask turning 33 next March, expect the Bruins to use a similar platoon this season, and that will cause problems even for the league's top offenses.
