Team Canada goalie Mark Visentin pitched a shutout in the bronze-medal game of the world junior hockey championship yesterday, but wouldn't have gotten the clean sheet without one of the most amazing saves ever.

Visentin plucked the puck out of the air behind his back with his catching glove, after the puck rang off the goalpost and hit the back of his jersey. Canada beat Finland, 4-0.

Of course, Boston fans know a little bit about amazing saves. Bruins goalie Tim Thomas was the star of the Stanley Cup playoffs, and his stick-save against the Lightning in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals was as jaw-dropping as they come.

So we put forth the evidence in the videos embedded and ask: Which one was better? Cast your vote.
