Video: Al Montoya’s save of the year entry vs. the Panthers


Al Montoya enjoyed some of the best moments of his career as an NHL backup with the Florida Panthers. Maybe facing his old team will help him turn things around after some early struggles with the Montreal Canadiens?

A highlight reel save won’t erase that 10-0 blowout from the Columbus Blue Jackets, yet it’s also true that Montoya’s enjoyed enough moments that he can redeem himself.

But, really, that’s a discussion for later on. For now, let’s gape in awe at Montoya’s sprawling save, which you can watch in the video above.

Update: To make things even sweeter, the Canadiens helped Montoya get the win with this overtime-clincher.
