Stars' Ellis gets to remind Ruff of 'No Goal' every day with goalie mask

By John Vogl

Lindy Ruff has to take a gentler look at "No Goal" nowadays because he's the coach in Dallas. He also has to think about the play every day.

Stars backup goaltender Dan Ellis has a new mask, and it's a tribute to Dallas legends Mike Modano, Eddie Belfour, Marty Turco and, of course, Brett Hull. There's a picture representative of each player, and the Hull photo is him scoring the infamous goal against the Sabres with his foot in the crease to win the 1999 Stanley Cup.

Here are the photos from Daveart.com.
