Top 10 Saves of the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs

Congratulations to Matt Murray and the Pittsburgh Penguins on winning the Stanley Cup! Sadly, that also means the season has come to an end. We were treated to some fantastic goaltending for nearly two months, as we got deeper and deeper into the playoffs. Both goaltenders stole the show in the final, but especially Martin Jones of the San Jose Sharks.

Let’s rewind all the way back to the first round and recap the best saves from the entire 2016 Stanley Cup playoffs. Enjoy, and see you next season!

    #1 is Jay Beagle in Pitt / Washington game 6 OT. It was the best save I’ve ever seen.
