Braden Holtby turns in the save of the day in 2017 NHL All-Star game


Braden Holtby turned in the save of the afternoon in Sunday’s NHL All-Star game. The victim, like so many times before, was a Boston Bruin.

The save came in the second (final) period of the first-round game between the Atlantic Division and the Metropolitan Division. Holtby shut the door on Boston’s Brad Marchand, to maintain a two-goal lead for the Metropolitan Division.

The Metropolitan Division would go on to win the first round game 10-6, advancing to face the Pacific Division in the final of the 2017 All-Star game. The save, in super slow-mo:

Holtby still owns Boston.
