OK, I’ll admit that Roberto Luongo definitely deserves consideration for a few of the saves he made last night (particularly stopping a few late shots in the third and a Marian Hossa breakaway in overtime). I’ll also concede that this is a flawed choice since Marty Turco actually received a tripping penalty as a result of this move.

Still, whenever a goalie makes an aggressive move to leave his crease and cut off a skater’s angle, it evokes memories of Dominik Hasek’s greatest days. Turco stopped what very well could have been a Tanner Glass goal with this move to help continue his four game winning streak.
