Devan Dubnyk showed off a backhand a tennis pro might even applaud. 

The Minnesota Wild goalie made an eye-popping stick save on Carl Soderberg to keep the Arizona Coyotes forward late in the first period of their game Saturday.

Dubnyk made a stick save on Soderberg's initial shot, but the puck caromed over his head and toward the goal. But Dubnyk reached back with his stick and swatted the puck away off the post before Joel Eriksson Ek cleared it away.

The save was the one of the best from Dubnyk's 31-save night, which helped Minnesota take a 4-3 win against Arizona.
