This was obviously not your every day glove save, as the current front-runner for the Vezina battled his way through a Dustin Brown screen and threw his glove behind his back in desperation to make the save on one of the NHL’s best.
Vasilevskiy sits in the top 5 in all major goaltending categories including save percentage (.929), wins (32) and ridiculous, behind-the-back, logic-defying glove saves (1).
