You have to give Bridgeport Sound Tigers goaltender David Leggio props for playing hockey from a mathematical perspective.
In a game against the Springfield Falcons, Leggio's opponents sprinted down the ice on a 2-on-0. So Leggio decided his best chance to stop the play was to knock the net off its moorings and deal with a penalty shot.
As you can see at the end of the video, the move actually worked as Leggio stopped the ensuing penalty shot.
According to ctpost.com, Leggio believed he had a greater opportunity to make a save on a breakaway than a 2-on-0.
"I thought there was a better percentage chance of stopping one guy instead of two," he said.
So basically, if you ever needed confirmation that goalies are a different breed, just search for David Leggio.
