Jaromir Jagr extended his point streak to four games Saturday with an assist in the first period of Boston Bruins' 4-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes. He spent the rest of the night looking for more.
His best chance came midway through the second period. With the Bruins on a 5-on-3, David Krejci found Jagr all alone at the side of the Hurricanes net for what looked like an easy one. But that's when Justin Peters came across and made the undisputed save of the night:
Jagr's disgust is appropriate. It's a disgusting save.
Peters hasn't had a lot of hero moments this year in Carolina. He's 3-8-0 with a save percentage of .902 and a GAA of 3.02. So this probably felt especially good.
It was a huge save for the Hurricanes, keeping the game at 1-1. Just a few minutes later, Jiri Tlusty would put Carolina ahead. Peters was named the first star in the eventual 4-2 win.
