Shut it down.

It’s over.

Let’s go home.

There are another 10 months to go before the end of the year and nearly a full season of combined hockey, including the playoffs, but the save of the year has likely been decided on this, Feb. 10, 2018.

Yes, that’s Andrei Vasilevskiy, the front-runner for the Vezina Trophy this year, casually reaching around to get a glove on Anze Kopitar’s wrist shot into what looks like an open cage.


Instead, Vasilevskiy commits some of the finest robbery seen.

It’s just so majestic.

The save is just bonkers, the front-runner for save of the year, and one that will likely take divine intervention to dethrone at this point.

Ay Caramba
