Watch Ben Bishop make an amazing diving glove save after terrible giveaway
Ben Bishop giveth, and Ben Bishop taketh away.
That was the lesson learned for Buffalo Sabres forward Kyle Okposo on Thursday night. Okposo likely thought he had a sure goal when the Lightning goaltender mistakenly passed the puck right to him from behind the net. With a wide-open net to shoot on, Okposo fired away.
Unfortunately for Okposo, Bishop is a large man (he stands at 6-foot-7) and he used that long frame to extend and rob the Sabres forward with an awesome diving glove save. If you're going to commit an atrocious turnover, it's always a good idea to bail yourself out with an amazing highlight reel play.
This is the second great diving glove save in as many weeks, as Ryan Miller successfully pulled off a wild robbery on an empty-net attempt from mid-ice.
