Nashville Predators goalie Carter Hutton flipped over after an open ice collision with the Buffalo Sabres' Marcus Foligno.
It’s not a rarity to see a goalie take a hard hit and tumble while in the net.
As Hutton left the goal crease to go for a loose puck, he was met by Sabres leftwinger Marcus Foligno, who fell and slide right into the goalie.
The collision caused Hutton to flip over completely and smash into the boards head first.
Despite the cringe-worthy scene, Hutton stayed in the rest of the game, which ended up being a 3–2 Predators win.
Carter Hutton referred to his collision as a "fliperooski." Told him I didn't know how to spell that. He said he just invented the word.— Adam Vingan (@AdamVingan) November 26, 2015
