Few plays in hockey draw a bigger reaction than a glove save. There's just something about the big leather mitt snatching a puck out of midair that gets fans and players going.
Jhonas Enroth's glove has been hot all week. He hasn't been shy about showing it off.
The Buffalo Sabres' backup goaltender brazenly waved the leather back and forth after several stellar catches in training camp, demonstrating to the shooters who had the edge.
"It was pretty funny," Enroth said Wednesday. "Guys were giving me a little [grief] after, but it was a good glove day, for sure.
"I've been here for a couple years, and I'm starting to feel a bit more comfortable with stuff like that. Outside the rink, too, I'm more comfortable after being here for a while now. I'm starting to feel more at home."
Sabres' Enroth will get chance to flash skills
