Crawford Takes Weber Slapshot Directly Off The Mask
Shea Weber has a nightmare-inducing slapshot. The Montreal Canadiens’ defencemen is an offensive threat every time he steps onto the ice because of that dangerous weapon. Blocking his shot with any part of the body would hurt, but taking one off the head would surely be the least ideal place.
For Corey Crawford, that nightmare became reality on Tuesday night.

Luckily he was able to shake off the point-blank shot and stay in the game, stopping 40 shots in a 4-2 win at the Bell Centre. Crawford’s CCM Pro Mask was up to the task, somehow surviving the impact without cracking or denting. Now that’s protection!
