Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy made a spectacular glove save against Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins midway through the second period in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final on Monday.

Crosby appeared to have a wide-open net when he took a backhand shot from the right of the slot. But Vasilevskiy flashed across the crease, gloved the shot and held it with 9:29 remaining in the period.

The save kept the score tied 2-2.

Crosby got his revenge in overtime, scoring the winning goal 40 seconds into the extra period to give the Penguins a 3-2 win.
