Ron Tugnutt

Biography:Ron Tugnutt (born October 22, 1967 in Scarborough, Ontario) is an former professional ice hockey goaltender. He played in the OHL from 1984-1987 and was drafted by the Quebec Nordiques of the NHL in the 4th round, 81st overall.

On March 21, 1991, Tugnutt stopped 70 of 73 shots to earn his hapless Nordiques a 3-3 tie against the powerhouse Boston Bruins, the second highest number of saves made in a regular season NHL game. His performance in that game evoked such respect that after it was over, several Bruins skated over to congratulate Tugnutt.

As a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Tugnutt was in goal for the epic May 4, 2000, playoff game against the Philadelphia Flyers. He made 70 saves on 72 shots. Unfortunately for the Penguins, the 72nd shot was a goal scored by Keith Primeau of the Flyers at 12:01 of the fifth overtime (hockey). The final score was Philadelphia 2, Pittsburgh 1, after 152:01 minutes, the longest NHL game since the 1930s.

Tugnutt's best season was in 1998-1999 for the Ottawa Senators, in which he amassed a 22-10-8 record and led the NHL in goals against average with a 1.79 mark, at the time the second lowest full season mark of the expansion era, and was named to play in the 1999 All-Star Game.

He retired during the 2005 NHL lockout and now he is broadcasting member for CBC's hockey night in Canada
