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.

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

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.

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

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

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

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...
