Calgary Goalie Reto Berra’s Ridiculous Bicycle Kick Stop Is Early Save of the Year Candidate (Video)

Life post-Mikka Kipprusoff has been a goalie carousel for the Calgary Flames, but Wednesday night it paid off. The Flames are once again in the midst of a disappointing season — not quite bad enough to launch into rebuilding mode, but not quite good enough to rise above the playoff bubble.
