NHL Saves of the Week(s): January 25 – February 7

With the all-star break shortening the previous week, this week’s top saves list combines all of the games that were played from January 25th to February 7th. There were plenty of options to choose from, including two incredible stops from Chad Johnson, two from goaltenders for the Pittsburgh Penguins, and a brilliant paddle stop from none other than Jonathan Quick.

Enjoy those saves and more in this week’s NHL saves of the week!
