Ed Belfour makes a kick-save during Game 4 of the Campbell Conference Final between the Chicago Blackhawks and Edmonton Oilers on May 22, 1992. The fiery goaltender known as “The Eagle” won the 1991 Calder Trophy and went on to become a two-time Vezina Trophy-winner who posted 484 wins — third all-time — including 76 shutouts during his 17-year career. The Hall of Fame goalie, who backstopped the Dallas Stars to a Stanley Cup victory in 1999, turned 50 years old today. (Richard Mackson/SI)
