Even the best puck-handling goalies have a tendency to raise their fans’ collective blood pressure with the occasionally ill-advised jaunt away from their nets.
Ben Bishop ranks as one of the best-passing goalies in the NHL right now, yet the double-edged sword is that he can be a little, um, adventurous at times. Whether his journeys are worth it overall or not is probably a debate for number-crunchers (and maybe an occasionally tense film session).
Bishop suffered one of those gaffes on Thursday, but in this case, the big goalie managed to make a highlight-reel save to avoid disaster. Watch that exciting/scary moment in the video above this post’s headline.
