If the whole hockey thing doesn't work out, Marc-Andre Fleury may want to get in to gymnastics.

The Vegas Golden Knights goalie made a ludicrous save, gloving a Logan Couture shot out of the air while seated on the ice in a full split. In overtime.

After a brilliant fake at a wraparound and perfect pass from Sharks forward Joe Pavelski, Couture's shot seemed ticketed for the net and perhaps an end to Game 3, but Fleury wasn't having it.

"I was looking at the guy with the puck. I just tried to follow the pass and get out there a bit and I had a little time to react on it. It was a good feeling," Fleury said.

The Golden Knights goalie made 39 saves in the win, but there is no argument as to which one of them was the prettiest.

"Game-saver from Flower there with the glove. Unbelievable," Golden Knights forward James Neal said.

William Karlsson, who later scored the game-winning goal, said he thought Couture had scored on the play initially.

"That's Fleury. That's what he does," Karlsson said. "I don't have to say it anymore. He's pretty good."
