Jake Allen made a big save during Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday. And he didn't have to leave the bench to do it.
The St. Louis Blues goalie protected his teammates on their bench by making a backhanded stab on Patrice Bergeron's clearing attempt during the second period of Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Boston Bruins.
Bergeron was trying to clear the puck while the Bruins were killing a penalty and spun and whipped a shot toward the Blues bench.
The Blues players and coaches ducked for cover, but Allen calmly snared the puck.
Aside from saving his teammates, Allen also made a young Blues fan's night by flipping the puck over the boards to a young Blues fan in a Pat Maroon jersey.
