NHL Saves of the Week: February 2 – 8

NHL Saves of the Week: February 2 – 8

If there is one word that could be used to describe this week’s best saves, it would be “unique.” Carey Price and Carter Hutton battle for the top spot with two of the most creative, and interesting saves you will see this entire season. It’s hard to believe another week has gone by and it’s already time for the NHL saves of the week from February 2nd to 8th:

#10
Michal Neuvirth – Buffalo Sabres

Neuvirth1

John Tavares had all day to wind up and aim this shot, but Neuvirth still robbed him!

#9
Frederik Andersen – Anaheim Ducks

Andersen1

Andersen didn’t track the initial shot cleanly, but he made up for it on the rebound attempt!

#8
Semyon Varlamov – Colorado Avalanche

Varlamov1

It was a bit of an accidental two-pad stack, but it worked for Varlamov.

#7
James Reimer – Toronto Maple Leafs

Reimer1

2015 has not been kind to the Maple Leafs, but Reimer has had some flashes of brilliance.

#6
Marc-André Fleury – Pittsburgh Penguins

Fleury1

Not the strongest shot from Hudler, but great awareness by Fleury to get his glove back!

#5
Keith Kinkaid – New Jersey Devils

Kinkaid1

Rookie Keith Kinkaid has been an exciting surprise for the New Jersey Devils in goal.

#4
Curtis McElhinney – Columbus Blue Jackets

McElhinney1

It’s not an easy task filling in for Bobrovsky, but McElhinney is doing the job quite well!

#3
Mike Smith – Arizona Coyotes

Smith1

Does Mike Smith have his mojo back? This great toe stop in overtime is a good sign!

#2
Carey Price – Montreal Canadiens

Price1

Sheer brilliance from Carey Price to react in time to get a piece of this shot. Amazing.

#1
Carter Hutton – Nashville Predators

Hutton1

This diving stop from Hutton was most certainly the save of the week, and has a very good chance of being the save of the year.
