Some nights, a goalie simply refuses to give up the tying goal under any circumstances. Being down on the ice and out of the play doesn’t even matter on nights like that, because the netminder is going to find a way to get a piece of that puck when it’s fired at his cage in the closing minutes. Last night was one of those nights for Devan Dubnyk, who said “no more” late in the final frame and helped put his team back in the win column.
After Ryan Murphy made an unbelievable play to poke a sure goal off the stick of Reilly Smith, Dubnyk one-upped him minutes later. I believe last night’s save on Jonathan Marchessault trumped Dubnyk’s opening night robbery in Detroit, as this one came in the waning minutes with the game on the line.
Incredible. Highway robbery. Grand larceny. All the way across his crease, stick save and a beauty.
