There are some moments that are so odd and amazing, you have to wonder if they were at least half-accidental. (A good example is that once-in-a-lifetime goal Alex Ovechkin scored against the Phoenix Coyotes.)

This save by Nikolai Khabibulin seems like it ranks in that category. It might not have won the game for the Edmonton Oilers, but it was pretty amazing nonetheless.
