Point Blank Q&A with Al Montoya: His Homecoming, Playing Back-to-Backs and Cap's Tie

Yesterday at practice, I spoke with the Islanders goaltender Al Montoya. He has started four of the team’s last five games since returning from injury on November 25th and made a relief appearance on Saturday night in Dallas. Through nine starts this season, he has a .930 save percentage and 2.17 GAA. We touched on playing in front of his family last Friday in Chicago, how he’s handling the workload of playing on back-to-back nights and, of course, the obligatory question about Capuano’s tie.
