Calgary Flames netminder makes impressive bicycle kick save

Published Add your comment

Calgary Flames netminder Reto Berra made an incredibly impressive save during his side's match against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old Swiss international stopped a certain goal from nestling in the back of his net by saving the puck with his outstretched leg in a bicycle kick-esque motion.

Berra's side went onto lose the NHL match in overtime - however the goaltender was 'buzzing' when he saw his outstanding save against the Jackets after full-time.

Berra, speaking after seeing a replay of his save, said:

"A couple of my friends, they sent me a message and said, ‘Wow, what a save'.

“All my buddies, they watch me here. They watch the highlights every time I play, and they’re going to tell all the people.”

Berra will be hoping he can replicate his impressive form on Friday night, when the Flames host the Florida Panthers at Saddledome.

Calgary Flames are currently sixth in the Pacific Western Conference, with seven wins from 22 games, while the Florida Panthers are seventh in the Atlantic Eastern Conference, with six wins from 23 games.
