Varlamov huge glove save on Thornton in OT (YT)
 
Real nice glove save. Not SOTY or anything like that, but thought it was worth posting.

Enjoy!



Props to MrH4bs for the YT link :)

Varlamov single-handed stole that point for you guys. The Sharks pretty much dominated all 3 periods and OT, but Varly was easily the best player on the ice tonight.

That save on Joe was ridiculous. That puck was labeled top shelf.

Varly looked exhausted out there after OT. But after playing a game like that, I don't think theres one goalie who wouldn't have been.

Drew and Randy will be on NBC tomorrow, best commentators in the biz.

What a show-off. He should have been respectful and let that go in.

Nihiliste 02-27-2013 01:20 AM

Absolutely filthy.

Reminds me a lot of the glove save Allen had recently.


Cory Trevor 02-27-2013 01:25 AM

Dude I love the guy who calls the Sharks game. I feel like I'm watching an early 90s games every time I watch their games.

Sick Save though. Rob Job from Varlamov.

The lateral movement and explosiveness aren't comparable, and those to me are what makes the Varly save ridiculous.

I think he's giving credit to Varlamov, not trying to **** on the Avs.

Yeah that shot from Thornton was likely going to hit the outside of the net. Not top shelf, it was shot a little wide.

Good save, nothing spectacular really.

Pretty much. Still both good saves.

Phu 02-27-2013 02:36 AM

This is the truly spectacular play from that game.



Well okay, this was freakin' awesome too:

First thing I thought of when I saw it was Roli's save in the playoffs.

Where is Barrie's spin-o-rama? I hope you're not biased!

What are you talking about? That puck was going in, or at worst case it would've hit the post.

Pause at 24-25 on the youtube video.. it was clearly going in. No debate.

It's a bummer that COL is struggling this year. Varly has been absolutely outstanding for you guys so far this year.

He's a fun goalie to watch.

Shades of Pavel Bure there.

That OP save is almost like the Bryzgalov save on Letang in the playoffs, except not as much lateral movement as what Bryz had to do

Still don't understand the trade for Varlamov is Colorado's POV

You need a goalie who can stop pucks to win games.

They (leaf fans) haven't had a good goaler in years, they forgot what that looks like.

The Barrie spin was nice but nothing like Boyles....Barrie was just skating ahead Boyle was embarrassing some dude while trapped by the blue line...
