Video: Poulin’s show in Calgary

We’re so grateful the video medium exists because sometimes, words do no justice. Like in the instance of the final 13 seconds of Saturday’s Colorado vs. Calgary NLL game. Tied 12-12, the Mammoth have possession and in a mad scramble in front of the crease, Adam Jones and John Grant Jr. each have chances to win the game but Calgary goalie Mike Poulin comes up with the stops, dropping jaws with his save on Junior’s shot by using nothing but a flailing right arm. It’s a shame Poulin and the Riggers lost this game, but it won’t detract from the work you’ll see here.
