Vasilevskiy's remarkable SO save

TBL@MTL: Vasilevskiy dazzles in net to seal SO win

Andrei Vasilevskiy incredibly reaches behind his back for a phenomenal glove save on Charles Hudon to secure the Bolts' shootout win

  • 00:58 •

Andrei Vasilevskiy is starting to make a habit of behind-the-back glove saves.

The Tampa Bay Lightning goalie stopped Charles Hudon with a stunning glove stop in the third round of the shootout that clinched a 4-3 win against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.

Vasilevskiy outwaited Hudon, then flashed his glove behind his back to stop the Canadiens rookie. The Lightning players mobbed their goalie to celebrate the win, then marveled in disbelief at his stop on the in-arena television at Bell Centre.

Vasilevskiy didn't appear impressed, but that may be because he's done it already this season. He previously stopped Los Angeles Kings captain Anze Kopitar with a similar save during the first period of Tampa Bay's 4-3 victory Feb. 10.
