Bruins vs. Sabres: Andrew Ference makes desperate kick-save

Ference (almost) saved the game.

USA TODAY Sports

With the game on the line, and all of Boston watching breathlessly, Andrew Ference saved the game for the Bruins. Briefly.

Boston was defending a 2-1 lead with minutes left to go when Ference decided to bail out his netminder and play goalie for a minute.

The save was impressive and looked like it would seal the win for Boston until Cody Hodgson tied the game with half a minute remaining to ruin what would've been a great moment for Boston. He apparently didn't get the memo.
