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.

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.
