Mustang Facemask on Detroit Goalie
For all you hockey fans watching the NHL playoffs, you may have noticed the sweet red Shelby Mustang gracing the sides of Detroit Red Wings’ goalie, Jimmy Howard’s mask or helmet. It appears to be a 1967 Shelby, done in the “Eleanor” style, which is where he got the idea for the mask.
Unlike the movie, it is red with whites stripes, to match the Red Wings’ team colors of course. They just won Game 5, giving them 2 wins in the 7-game series, to San Jose Sharks’ 3 wins. Howard says he doesn’t own a Mustang, but is proud of its connection with Detroit and the Motor City.
