As long as Bud Holloway is on the ice, the St. John's IceCaps of the American Hockey League can afford to pull their goalie to bring on an extra skater.

Because Holloway has the net on lockdown.

During Saturday night's game against the Binghamton Senators, Holloway made what should go down as the best save of the year. He went from center to Superman in the blink of an eye.

When the Senators' Cole Schneider took a shot at the empty net, Holloway dove to swat the puck away with his stick. Goal denied.

The IceCaps lost 4-1. But even if it came in a losing effort, this save is worthy of being on highlight reels for years to come.
