The Pittsburgh Penguins’ stole one from the Ottawa Senators last night in their 2-1 overtime victory, thanks to a remarkable save made by goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.
With the game all tied up at one, Ottawa was fixing to take the lead at the 10:35-minute mark of the third period, when defenseman Erik Karlsson fired a rising wrist shot, but Fleury scrambled over to make what’s reportedly being called the best save of his career.
Laying flat on his stomach, Fleury got over to cover what was essentially an empty-net, and snatched the high-heater, leaving Karlsson in disbelief as to why the puck didn’t see the back of the cage.
Was it the best save of his goaltending career? You be the judge. Check it out below – courtesy of SomeHockeyVideos:
