Union Defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere Bails Out Goalie, Makes Four Saves (Video)

Union College goaltender Colin Stevens recorded 25 saves in his team’s 3-1 win over Providence in the NCAA tournament regional final on Saturday afternoon, but his defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, also got in on the action between the pipes.

The 21-year-old Philadelphia Flyers prospect and Hobey Baker finalist preserved the Dutchmen’s 1-0 lead in the first period as he made a sequence of miraculous saves in the crease. Gostisbehere covered for his junior netminder during a flurry of Friars shots, dropping to his knees and making not just one save during the barrage, but four total.

It’s safe to say Gostisbehere saved a goal — or four — on the play, but it was certainly all worth it for the junior blueliner as Union became the first team to punch its ticket to the Frozen Four.

Check out the heroic stops in the video below.
