The Boston Bruins have had a talented goaltender in their pipeline for some time now, and on Sunday night he got a chance to showcase his talents on the big stage during a National Hockey League preseason game against the New York Rangers. 

That goalie is 26 year old Brandon Bussi, an undrafted player that was scouted by the Bruins out of Western Michigan University and one who is coming off a pair of very strong seasons with their American Hockey League affiliate the Providence Bruins.

On Sunday night, Bussi stole the show when he absolutely robbed New York Rangers forward Jonny Brodzinski of a sure goal. Bussi went post to post while flashing his glove hand, leaving both the Rangers and every fan in attendance stunned.

Although the save itself was spectacular, Bussi was simply spectacular overall on the night shutting down the Rangers at every turn. In fact, through 40 minutes of play Bussi stopped every high danger shot the Rangers managed to throw his way, a very impressive display from a rookie goaltender.

It was a performance that those who followed Bussi's career in Providence may have seen coming, with the 25 year old coming off a 32 games season in which he recorded a .924 save percentage and a 2.40 goals against average. If Bussi can maintain that level of consistency in the NHL, we may be hearing his name a lot more this season.
