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

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.
