Blackhawks goaltender goes full Superman with incredible diving glove save

Is it a bird? A plane? Nope, it's Scott Darling!

You don't need to be a starting goaltender in the NHL to make some incredible moves. With Corey Crawford, Chicago Blackhawks normal netminder, taking a rest, 27-year-old Scott Darling was tasked with guarding the pipes on Monday against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

And he has certainly delivered so far. Darling not only had a shutout heading into the final 10 minutes of the game, he also made a miraculous diving glove stop that would have made Superman proud to keep the Maple Leafs off the board.

Even with the shooter at almost point blank range and completely unguarded, Darling managed to flash the glove quick enough in the midst of a lunge to take away the wide open net for the Maple Leafs.

Most definitely a save of the year candidate right here.
