TORONTO- A day after making what has already been termed the “save of the year”, goaltender Drew MacIntyre had a chance to reflect on what exactly it was that he did.

“They were right by saying best save ever,” MacIntyre said smiling. “But, it was luck. My thinking was just get a body part in front of it.”

The Rochester Americans were dominating the Toronto Marlies for the entire second period Saturday in Game 1 of their first-round matchup, out-shooting the home side 19-3. MacIntyre stopped 17 of those shots, but none stuck out like his glove save on Zemgus Girgensons when the game was tied 3-3.

“(Johan Larsson) kept cutting, there was traffic and I lost the puck for a second. When he passed it I was late,” MacIntyre said of how the play unfolded. “I’ve done it in practice and it was a big joke, but never in a game.”

The save was also big for its timing as Toronto had no right to be tied at that point in the game. MacIntyre kept his club in it and they rewarded him with three third-period goals to take Game 1 of the best-of-five series 6-3.

The MarliesTV account on Youtube had over 30 000 views of the save before starting Game 2 on Sunday against the Americans. The 29-year-old goaltender admitted he was one of them.

“I’m not a big internet guy, but I thought I may as well check it out. A lot of people from home sent texts about it.”

MacIntyre stopped 25 shots Sunday as the Marlies blanked Rochester 2-0. In the two games against his former club he has stopped 56-of-59 shots, leading the Marlies to a 2-0 series lead.

“He gives our group confidence and just a sense of calm back there. That’s what you want from your goalie,” said Marlies head coach Dallas Eakins. “You want your goalie to give your team a real sense of calm knowing that he’s going to make the saves that he’s supposed to and once in a while he’s going to make the saves that he’s not supposed to.”

The Marlies can eliminate the Americans on Wednesday in Rochester.
