Jonathan Boutin is working on his cult hero status.
Boutin stopped 20 of 21 shots before being thrown out of the game early in the third for participating in a massive brawl ending with the young netminder squaring off against Sharks prospect goaltender Tomas Greiss. Boutin got the win with Marc Denis stopping 19 of 20 shots the rest of the way.
