NJD@PHI: Hart shuts down Hall's heavy one-timer

Someone call the cops. Carter Hart robbed Taylor Hall.

The Philadelphia Flyers goalie made an eye-popping glove save on the New Jersey Devils forward's shot late in the second period of Philadelphia's 4-0 win on Wednesday.

With the Devils on a 5-on-3 power play and the Flyers leading 1-0, Hall one-timed a pass from Jack Hughes from a sharp angle that appeared destined to tie the game.

But Hart went side to side and stopped Hall's try with his glove before Flyers defenseman Ivan Provorov came to the rescue and cleared the puck.

"I kind of lost the pass in the middle there," Hart said. "I saw him winding up on the side, so I just kind of had to quickly push over and stick my arm out and luckily it hit me."

It was the best of Hart's 25 saves, which helped him become the youngest goalie in team history to post a shutout. It also left teammates Sean Couturier and Kevin Hayes, who were in the box at the time, in awe.

"It was unbelievable," Couturier said. "We were pretty nervous; 5-on-3 for two minutes, and he made some big saves especially that one. It was 1-0 at that point; really a game-changer there." Deputy Managing Editor Adam Kimelman contributed reporting.
