Highway Robbery: Anderson Gets Dumba with Paddle

The hockey gods giveth, and the hockey gods taketh away. Just ask Matt Dumba of the Minnesota Wild, as he found himself on with a golden opportunity for his second goal of the year (and game) after this low-hanging fruit of a rebound came right to him on the doorstep late in the first period vs. Anaheim. It's the type of chance that most defensemen would give their left and right arms for, but alas it wasn't meant to be. Enter Ducks' backstop Frederik Andersen to commit the larceny with the paddle. Incredible save, but the Ducks still find themselves in an 0-2 hole vs. Minnesota late in the second.
