Sabres goalie Chad Johnson makes diving save to rob Lightning

Wednesday November 11th, 2015

Buffalo Sabres goalie Chad Johnson looked a little lost for a moment in Tuesday’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning after wandering way out of his crease to cut down the angle on a streaking Alex Killorn.

As Killorn went around the net, the play left Johnson out of position and a gaping net for Bolts forward Nikita Kucherov, but he recovered in time to make a belly flop toward the far post to stymie Kucherov and ended up in perfect position to stop Tyler Johnson's attempt to score off the rebound.

Although he made the highlight-reel save, maybe Chad Johnson could do Sabres fans a solid and hang out a little closer to the net next time.
