R1, Gm6: Frederik Andersen extends his glove and makes a fantastic snag on Patrice Bergeron's point-blank chance late in the 1st

Frederik Andersen committed a robbery on Sunday.

The Toronto Maple Leafs goalie made a stunning save on Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron late in the first period of Game 6 of the Eastern Conference First Round.

Andersen was leaning toward Brad Marchand, who had the puck, and away from where Bergeron was set to shoot. But Marchand tucked a pass through Maple Leafs defenseman Travis Dermott's legs to his linemate at the top of the crease.

Bergeron one-timed the pass but couldn't beat the lunging Andersen, who caught the puck high in his trapper before it could cross the goal line.

Bergeron was left in disbelief, as was the Scotiabank Arena crowd after watching the replay on the scoreboard before breaking into a "Fred-die" chant.

It was the best of Andersen's 37 saves, but it wasn't enough to stop Boston. The Bruins won 4-2 and forced Game 7 at TD Garden on Tuesday.
