Flames Goalie Dives Like Superman In Most Egregious Hockey Flop Ever

Mike Smith is one of the best puck-handling goalies in the NHL. And, as it turns out, he’s also one of the league’s premier actors.

Take another look:

No, Smith was not whistled for embellishment. Perhaps the zebras felt his Superman dive was genuine.

The Flames eventually skated to a 3-1 over the Canucks. Calgary clinched a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs on Thursday, and likely will enter the postseason as the top seed in the Western Conference.
