Inside the Play: The Save

Cal Petersen and Jim Fox break down the rookie's incredible diving save against the Vancouver Canucks

In this segment of Inside the Play, Cal Petersen joins Jim Fox to break down the incredible glove save that he made in Vancouver against the Canucks.

"I figured since we had the middle clogged up pretty good, I was pretty aggressive," Petersen said about his positioning, as he hugged the near-side post. 

But when Alex Biega faked the shot and passed the puck across the net to his teammate Loui Erikkson, Petersen has to reevaluate his decision. 

"It happened so fast. I was more so trying to react to the shot," Petersen said.

The pass made it to Erikkson, who tried to put it in, but Alec Martinez was there to extend his stick and get a piece of it.

Martinez' deflection popped right into Petersen's glove, who was sprawled out across the net. 

A little bit of luck and a lot of skill make for one incredible play.
