Rangers vs. Canadiens: Dustin Tokarski robs Martin St. Louis with flashy glove save

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

Tokarski is giving the Habs plenty of chances to stay alive in Game 4.

Carey Price is unquestionably the Montreal Canadiens' best player. So when the starting netminder bowed out of the rest of the Eastern Conference Final with an injury it was hard to believe the Habs had much of a chance of advancing.

But rookie netminder Dustin Tokarski is turning that idea on its head with a couple of strong performances, including a 35-save outing in Game 3 to earn his first postseason win. He showed flashes of brilliance again on Sunday in Game 4, using his aggressive tendencies to stymie the Rangers on multiple occasions.

His best save of the night came on Martin St. Louis in the second period, when he made one of the flashiest glove saves of the season.

Not many goalies can stare down a future Hall of Famer like that. Point taken, Dustin. Maybe fans were wrong to doubt you, but the Rangers still hold a 2-1 lead after two periods in Game 4.
