Man, I was at the game where he made the save on Nolan, it was one of the weirdest experiences at a game I've seen. It felt like the whole arena was silent for a split second. I was on the far end of the ice, so I certainly assumed it went it. Then the whole crowd realized the red light didn't come on and just completely erupted. It was awesome.

It's much easier to tell when Niemi makes a save, because the rebound pops out right in front of him every time
