Who is Jussi Markkanen?
It's probably not a question a coach wants asked of their starting goaltender when they're heading into Game 3 of the Stanley Cup final, but it's the question The Globe and Mail's Al Maki set out to answer on the eve of the big game.
As a youngster, he followed Kari Takko and Jarmo Myllys, the first two Finnish goalies to get a true shot at the NHL. (Interesting enough, Takko played for the Oilers in 1990. He was acquired for defenceman Bruce Bell in what became known as the Takko-Bell deal.)Hilarious, as always.
