Now That’s a Save


This is quite possible one of the best saves I’ve EVER seen, in any sport. Simeon Varlamov of the Washington Capitals is out of position and has one of the best players in the NHL bearing down on him with the puck; he doesn’t panic though and reaches out with the edge of his stick and somehow, someway makes the save. Amazing. And this photo below captures the moment perfectly, click it to see a slightly larger version, but this save is simply remarkable.

    the only problem is that the puck is visibly over the line in this photo, making it not a save.

    and then the next minute of the video reminds us why hockey is BORING BORING BORING.
