Tale of the Tape: Tim Howard vs. Jonathan Quick

A goalkeeper is a designated player in sports who’s job is to prevent the opposing team from scoring by intercepting shots at the goal….Just in case you didn’t know that already.

LA Kings goalie, Jonathan Quick, led the NHL in several categories last season…Oh, he also helped the Kings finish the season with a championship.

Team USA goalie, Tim Howard, recently helped the United States advance further than expected in the World Cup, he also broke a World Cup record.

Two different sports but who’s the better stopper?

Jonathan Quick
Tim Howard
Recent Stats and Records
2013-14 season Quick led the league in wins, saves and shutouts.
Winner Howard set a record with the most saves in any World Cup‬ match in history with 16.
Better Team
Winner The LA Kings won the Stanley Cup.
After falling to Belgium on Tuesday, team USA won't get another chance to win a World Cup until 2018.
The Age Factor
Quick is 28 years old, he also has wrist surgery scheduled for this off-season, unfortunately.
Winner Howard is 35 years old and is saving goals like it's 1999.

The Winner Is

Winner Tim Howard
2 out of 3

Tim Howard wins! Still wouldn't want to shoot against Jonathan Quick but I would rather avoid Howard who is on a goal-saving high after that record breaking match against Belgium. Quick is one hell of a goalie in the NHL but he is injured and I might be biased but Howard is representing America during this World Cup and he made this whole country proud.
