Minnesota started with 60 players on their roster for training camp. For a lot of young players, it's their first chance to see what it's like in the NHL.

But the story of Tuesday's game was this insane save by Colorado Avalanche goaltender Nathan Lieuwen who stabbed a puck out of mid-air and behind-his-back for that matter.
