The Big Save

The Texas Stars soundly defeated the Oklahoma City Barons in last night's game. It wasn't going to be an easy battle as the Barons came in on a long winning streak. With a little help from Anders Lindback, one of the Dallas Stars' goalies on the team for a conditioning assignment, the Texas Stars pulled off a huge 5-1 win.  Saves like this were a big part of that victory.  Greg Rallo, also pictured in this series, tallied two goals for the Stars in the game. 

Getting clean shots of saves like this can be tough due to all the traffic around the net. There are a lot of bodies in the way. On ice officials are the worst offenders and I lose many a save shot due to a black and white striped jersey blocking my view. I was lucky have full view of Lindback's kick save in this case.
