Vancouver Canucks goalie Jacob Markström had an insane save during a 5-2 win Wednesday night over the San Jose Sharks.
During what can best be described as a two-on-one, it looked like the Sharks were going to get a look at a wide open net. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Give it a watch below. It’s absurd.

There’s no doubt at all that the save above from Markström will be one of the best we see all season. That was just an unreal play.
That’s the kind of play that gets talked about in the locker room for a solid week at the very least. I’m not sure he could do that again if he was given 20 chances.

There’s a lot of talent in a play like that, but there’s also a bit of luck. The timing to get a save like that off of the leg pad is simply unreal.
Props to Markström for giving us one of the best saves we’ve seen in the NHL in a long time. Hockey is such a damn great sport!
