Goalies look darn awesome in EA Sports’ new NHL 13 trailer (VIDEO)

Making the goalies better in a hockey video game is like making the barrels better in "Donkey Kong": They are an impediment to your cathartic amusement.

That said, the netminders in EA Sports' upcoming NHL 13 look pretty flippin' sweet:

From EA Sports:

The last man standing. Your last line of defense. With EA SPORTS Hockey I.Q., goalies in NHL 13 have been completely overhauled featuring all-new goalie anticipation and complete limb movement. Netminders will read and anticipate the play as it develops and with over 1000 new animations, are more dynamic than ever before. Goalies are now fully equipped to make that unthinkable save when the game is on the line.

Yeah, but can they lose their masks when Lucic'd? That's the real test for realism.
