Blue Jackets goalie catches a rainbow shot like a shortstop catching a fly ball

Joonas Korpisalo has some range.

Sometimes, when you're a kid, you just want to toss a baseball with someone. But nobody's around, so you just end up tossing the ball high into the air and try to catch it as it comes down. Sometimes you throw it too far backwards and you fall over.

And sometimes that happens in hockey. Sort of. The Nashville Predators came so close to a fluke goal when Viktor Arvidsson flipped a puck waaay over the head of Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Joonas Korpisalo.

Much like the lonely kid and the baseball, Korpisalo fell over. BUT HE CAUGHT IT.

How he didn't pull a muscle or something is beyond me.
