Lightning defenseman Anton Stralman saves goal with sprawling kick save

One of the most popular free agent signings of the summer was the Tampa Bay Lightning's decision to bring in Anton Stralman from the New York Rangers.

Underrated and overlooked for most of his career, Stralman finally started to gain some recognition during last year's playoff run and was able to land a multi-year deal with the Lightning on the first day of free agency. In the second period of their game on Monday night against Montreal it was paying off when he helped bail out Ben Bishop with a sliding stop along the goal line taking away what looked to be a sure goal for Jiri Sekac.

That brings back some memories of the play Stralman made in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Los Angeles Kings.
