Unreal Jordan Binnington save

In the second period of the Komets vs. Kalamazoo Wings game at Memorial Coliseum on March 22, 2014.

A goaltending show

In a scoreless second period at Memorial Coliseum, the goaltenders stole the show.

The Komets' Matt Grogan stopped all seven shots he faced, and he's got 15 saves in the game, which is tied at 2.

Kalamazoo's Jordan Binnington stopped 14 shots in the second period -- including a beautiful sliding stop on an odd-man rush -- and he's stopped 20 shots for the game.

Should be a good third period.
