In case you missed it last night, New York Rangers forward Brendan Lemieux went viral online after an incredible shot-blocking sequence against the New Jersey Devils.
Lemieux absolutely laid his body on the line to block a slapshot from Devils blueliner P.K. Subban and ended up injuring himself in the process. So what does he do? Fall to the ice and lay there in a motionless heap? Not a chance, this is hockey... not soccer.
Lemieux got up and managed to somehow get himself back into position before blocking a second Subban blast.

This sequence went viral online reaching the frontpage of Reddit and gaining tens of thousands of views on Twitter, Youtube and Facebook.
