Video: Avalanche blue liner Benoit makes the save on Bruins’ empty-net attempt

Mar 22, 2014, 2:00 AM EST

Colorado Avalanche defenseman Andre Benoit saved what could’ve been a sure goal with a rather unconventional save.

Benoit threw himself in front of a Jarome Iginla empty-net attempt late in the third period of Friday’s game between the Avalanche and Boston Bruins. With the Avalanche down a pair of goals, and their net empty with Patrick Roy pulling Semyon Varlamov for the extra attacker, the Benoit save at least gave his team an extended chance at perhaps getting a goal to get back in this one.

In the end, however, the Bruins withstood any Colorado attack in the third period for a 2-0 victory. It’s Boston’s 11th consecutive win, which helped them clinch a playoff berth.

    Nearly took a puck to the face for the sake of the ‘team’. I love hockey!
