One hockey fan pulled off the rare winter web gem on Saturday.
While holding his young child in one arm, a man reached up with his bare hand to snag a puck that had soared over the boards during a game between the Norfolk Admirals (the Anaheim Ducks’ American Hockey League affiliate) and Bridgeport Sound Tigers (New York Islanders).
The home fans in Norfolk gave the guy a nice ovation, even though his authentic blue-and-orange Anders Nilsson sweater hinted that he was clearly rooting for the Sound Tigers. (Nilsson, a goalie, had a cup of coffee with the Isles earlier this season, and he did not fare well, allowing 17 goals in five appearances.)
