from Kerry Fraser of TSN,

Just as Jiri Tlusty was in motion to shoot the puck Zdeno Chara made a swing with his stick in desperation from a position well behind the shooter. Clear contact was made above the blade of Tlusty's stick resulting in a clean snap of the shaft and ultimately the loss of a scoring opportunity.

I have called penalty shots for much less!

Video- Cam Ward With The Save Of The Night

via Luke Fox of Sportsnet,

After making the initial kick save on Derek Grant’s snap from the wing, Ward flashes the paddle and lunges cross-crease, knocking Colin Greening’s sure rebound conversion away and stamping out Karlsson’s point streak at five games.

“I had goosebumps after that one,” Ward told reporters after the victory, admitting the rebound was a bad one on his part. True, the struggling Greening (24 GP, 0 G) should’ve buried that puck, but Ward deserves props for the desperate paddle.

“We play this game for a living, but when you make a save like that, I turn into a little kid,” he said. “It also was a sigh of relief to get that save because that was a big part of the game in the first period.”
