Normally when you see a hockey video on the Internet, it is for some spectacular save. In the case of Hannu Toivonen, it’s the complete opposite. The Finnish goalie made the brutal mistake of allowing a goal from the opposite blue line. Rogle defensemen Jesper Jensen let a shot fly from his own blue line and Toivonen, the goalie for Malmo was unable to stop it.
Toivonen has played in the NHL before, but flubs like this won’t have teams knocking on his door to return. It takes a horrible case of bad luck to miss a save on a shot from that far out. Hopefully Toivonen can rebound and get this flub behind him. If not, it’s going to make for one heck of a video to be known for.
