University of Minnesota Duluth goaltender Kasimir Kaskisuo made a save against Miami University forward Cody Murphy Friday night that we’re still shaking our heads at:

Just … How? … Wow.

The 21-year old freshman couldn’t do it all as he made 36 saves (and even added an assist), but the Bulldogs fell to the RedHawks 3-2.

Despite the highlight-reel save, Kaskisuo was his biggest critic in talking about the stop.

“Personally, I don’t like that save,” Kaskisuo said afterward. That might sound weird. It was bad movement from me, not enough following him all the way and then just throwing the glove in there. This time I got lucky.”

Enjoy your viral moment, Mr. Kaskisuo.
