Shot might be as good as the save!
No. Timing of pulling the goalie is art. When to go for 2 is math. But I'm willing to hear alternative arguments on this.
VGK coach Gerard Gallant on Deryk Engelland: "He played real solid, tough hard hockey. When we talk about our team, it's about character and leadership. We were a little bit nasty the last two games, I thought. A little more aggressive and Deryk's a big part of that."
VGK coach Gerard Gallant on the save: "He's pretty incredible when he makes saves like that. It was 3-2 at that time & a huge save, but as a coach you come to expect that from him. He makes those saves. He's acrobatic and never gives up on the puck. It was a big save, obviously."
Fleury on save: "I just enjoyed it. I got a little giggle, a little smile. Just happy it didn't go in. As a goalie, those are the saves that make you feel (like a player feels when they score a goal). Those are the saves I love to play for. It's fun to do."
I'm with you
Fleury: "Lots of emotions because he beat me with the 1st shot & I wasn't happy. Heard the post & thought, 'Oh, maybe it's not in.' Then I found the puck and thought I better dive for it. Don't think the guy shot it as hard as he wanted to so I had more time to react I think."
Knights kill it off and Andersen heads to the bench for Toronto. 120 to play and VGK leading 3-2
McNabb heads to the box. 320 left and VGK leading 3-2. Huge penalty kill coming up for VGK. Both teams are perfect on the power play tonight
