Down 3-1 to Detroit in the final minutes, Vancouver goalie Ryan Miller began skating to his bench to get an extra attacker on the ice. As he was doing so, Red Wings’ Henrik Zetterberg gained control of the puck and fired from center ice. Miller responded by performing his best impression of a slick-fielding first baseman and snagging it out of mid-air.
Andres Galarraga would be proud.
The Canucks still lost, 3-1, but at least Miller can name his rec-league softball position in perpetuity.
