That's how much net Columbus Blue Jackets
defenseman Jack Johnson
was looking at after receiving a cross-ice pass from Ryan Johansen
. Yet, despite the golden opportunity, Reto Berra of the Calgary Flames
flashed a beautiful kick save to prevent a goal:
Nick Foligno's snipe a few minutes later would end up behind Berra, despite the lack of space compared to Johnson's chance.
Save of the year candidate? It'll definitely be part of the conversation when we start talking end-of-year awards soon.
