    He looked right first, though. It was an unlucky situation that put him in the position to need to make that save, so I wouldn't say Andersson didn't play it properly or that the fact he was "out of position" diminishes the save.

    This happens when your PK gets totally dominated.

    It's funny how 3 hours before that game last night people on here were saying he's not a #1 goalie and the Leafs will trade him:laugh:
    People need to relax and making judgments and changing their opinions.

    It was a great save, but if I am being perfectly honest, these kind of desperation, timing but still luck, diving paddle saves dont really excite me too much. Its too much of a random result.

    Great save for sure. If Toronto is to make this a series they need Andersen at 110%. I think that save last night might help make this a series.

    Every save like this is obviously borne of a goalie being caught horribly out of position and scrambling to cover up. Luckily for Andersen, things worked out in his favour and the puck bounced off his paddle instead of in the net.

    Big save, and kept the Leafs from another late playoff collapse to the Bruins.

    He gave up two terrible goals before he settled in. Would be nice if he didn't gift soft goals to Boston.

    Huge save to redeem himself. If that goes in, the next two minutes last for an eternity and Boston is so damn good with the man advantage they easily could have tied it.

    He was absolutely spectacular last night. First star of the game and it wasn’t even close. The teams breakdowns in front of him are horrendous and he bailed their ***** out single handedly.

    So wait.

    If a goalie makes a nice save due to excellent positioning, it's nothing, because he didn't even have to move to make the save.

    If a dude makes a great desperation save, it's only because he was so out of position in the first place.

    So... Is it possible to make a nice save? I really want to hear the logic behind this.

    Is it more exciting when a goalie is in position and stops the puck which his chest?

    Do you not know where the slot is? Chara shot that from the goal line and was well out.

    I'm not a goalie, but I don't think he was way out of position or anything. When you look at the angle behind the net he was pretty heavily screened and the shot came from the left side, don't see how he's responsible for the puck ending up to his right. To me the several defenders in front of him should have prevented that pass from happening.

    Save was largely luck, but many are.

    Yeah he was the goat until he was the GOAT.

    Definitely rallied between those periods.
