Penguins’ Matt Murray makes unbelievable stick save

The chances of making this save are slim to none.

Yet, Penguins goalie Matt Murray defied the odds and got his stick in the right spot to stop a Boone Jenner snapshot in Pittsburgh’s Saturday night matchup with Columbus.

In the first period, with the Penguins trailing 1-0 on Jenner’s 12th of the year, it appeared he had his second of the night off a no-look pass from David Savard. However, Murray stretched his body across the crease to get his stick blade — watch it flutter stopping the puck — in the path of the centerman’s shot. 

Murray’s save may be a save of the year candidate but the netminder could not backstop the Penguins to a victory. The Blue Jackets won 4-1, as they battle for wild card spot with Montreal and Carolina and now sit two points behind Pittsburgh in the standings.
