Canucks’ goalie Jacob Markstrom makes audacious barehanded save
Being goalie is tough.
It’s a lot tougher when you don’t have all of your equipment.
That didn’t stop Canucks goalie Jacob Markstrom from making this save in Monday’s Vancouver-Winnipeg game.
After a scrum in front of the net, Markstrom lost both his blocker and stick. But when Alexander Burmistrov put a shot on net, Markstrom lunged for it with his barehand.
Markstrom ended up allowing five goals in Vancouver’s 5-2 loss, but it easily could have been six if not for some gall by the 26-year-old goalie.
