Montoya Securing #1 Role with Isles

Standard Spin: It looks like we can crown Al Montoya as the #1 goalie on Long Island.  Rick DiPietro and Evgeni Nabokov have done nothing to inspire confidence that they're capable of carrying the load, while Montoya has consistently kept his team competitive.  Montoya was steady again Tuesday, turning aside 23 of 24 shots in a 5-1 romp over the Lightning.  He's 3-1-1 since returning from a hamstring issue, and he's earned the right to see the lion's share of the work.  (Dec.7)
