AVS FORWARD BRANDON SAAD COMPLETELY FOOLS MARC-ANDRE FLEURY WITH SNEAKY BUZZER-BEATER

Colorado Avalanche forward Brandon Saad continues his stellar postseason play on Tuesday with a buzzer-beater to steal an early 1-0 lead against the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 5 of their second round matchup.

The wicked snapper was released in the dying seconds of the 1st period, completely fooling Marc-Andre Fleury up high on the short side.


A bit of an uncharacteristic gaffe by Fleury, who got caught reaching across his body with the glove, rather than just getting himself tight to post or coming out to cut off the angle and make the blocker save.

To be fair, Saad was alone in the offensive zone and was under pressure from a Golden Knights defender, so Fleury may have thought that Saad wouldn't be able to get a clean shot off in the last 2 seconds, let alone with that sort of placement.

That's one that Fleury would certainly like to have back. You don't have to look too hard to find the evidence as Fleury's reaction pretty much says it all.
