Islanders’ Kevin Poulin Robs Mike Ribeiro With Spectacular Split Save (Video)


The worst goaltending performance of Thursday night ironically included the night’s best save.

Islanders goalie Kevin Poulin was shelled in Phoenix, surrendering a career-worst six goals in a 6-3 loss to the Coyotes. Poulin has not been the answer in his first turn as a full-time starter. The 23-year-old has posted a 4-12-0 record this season with a 3.25 goals against average and .892 save percentage — ranking 40th among NHL netminders in both categories.

Poulin did turn in one highlight-reel stop against the Coyotes, though, sliding from right to left in the crease to rob Mike Ribeiro with a lunging glove save.

Check out the save in the video below.
