NHL Saves of the Week: January 18 – 24

NHL Saves of the Week: January 18 – 24

It seems as if the Vancouver Canucks have another goaltending battle brewing. Both of their goalies make this week’s list with phenomenal saves, as the two have been splitting time since Ryan Miller returned from his injury. The Canucks are giving up a lot of chances in front of them, so they have needed these standout goaltending performances.

The rest of the list is filled out by the usual suspects, and even includes another scorpion save – but this time it’s Brian Elliott of the St. Louis Blues coming up with the highlight-reel stop. Cam Ward is injured, so Eddie Lack has taken the reigns in Carolina. He hasn’t looked back, as he is playing some incredible hockey, and his best save comes in at number three on this week’s list.

Enjoy those saves and more in the top ten NHL saves of the week for January 18th to 24th:
