Vid: Antti Niemi Robs Bertuzzi in Motown Shootout



Antti Niemi was the magic man between the pipes for the Sharks in Detroit tonight, and we've got video to prove it.

The 30-year-old Finland native made a save that Sharks' commentator Drew Rememda deemed every bit as awesome as Tomas Hertl's now famous between-the-legs goal against the Rangers earlier in the season.

NHL.com is asking readers if it's the save of the year.

It could be.

Niemi flicks up his right pad to make the miracle save while Bertuzzi has him dead to rights out wide in the last frame of the shootout.

After a scoreless tie led to a shootout, Logan Couture put the Sharks ahead in the final frame before Bertuzzi's stoning ended the Game.

The Sharks remain the NHL's lone unbeaten squad at 8-0-1 for the season.
