Korpisalo makes two spectacular pad saves to stop Maroon, Johnson


Joonas Korpisalo continues to amaze in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Columbus Blue Jackets goalie made two spectacular right-pad saves, including an eye-popping stop on Tampa Bay Lightning forward Tyler Johnson during the second period of Game 4 of the Eastern Conference First Round.

With Tampa Bay on the power play, Korpisalo first stopped defenseman Victor Hedman with his left pad then flashed his right pad to stone forward Patrick Maroon attempt on the rebound. Johnson picked up the puck and fired it toward the net, but Korpisalo kicked his leg up again and deflected it with his skate.

The Blue Jackets official Twitter account loved it.

Korpisalo’s save on Johnson was the best of his 20 stops in Columbus’ 2-1 loss against the Lightning. Korpisalo has stopped 172 of 181 shots through four games, including his NHL-record 85 saves in Game 1, but Columbus trails the best-of-7 series 3-1.
