ECHL Goalie Makes Incredible Save to Deny Opponent of Easy Goal

It's not often that a play from the ECHL makes SportsCenter, but a save this good deserves a spot on the show.

Orlando Solar Bears goalie Cody Reichard left the net open when he went to retrieve the puck from behind the net. Unfortunately for him, the puck bounced off the boards and right to a Kalamazoo Wings player in front of a wide-open net.

Reichard stunned everyone by denying the Wings of an easy goal with an incredible diving effort. The goalie's wild save is certainly in the running for the best of the year.

Had it not been for a perfect game thrown by Miami Hurricanes pitcher Javi Salas Tuesday night, Reichard's save would have been the No. 1 play.
