AHL Player Makes Diving Save to Prevent Empty Net Goal (Video)
The sad thing about making a heroic save to prevent a goal scored on your team’s empty net is that you’re probably going to lose anyway, since the situation was already dire enough for you to pull your goalie.

It’s a shame that they weren’t able to win, but still. Cool play.
