#10
Marc-André Fleury – Pittsburgh Penguins

Fleury1

It’s official, Marc-André Fleury can windmill ANYTHING.

Craig Anderson – Ottawa Senators

Anderson1

This bouncing puck seemed impossible to track, but Anderson met it with the blocker.

#8
Henrik Lundqvist – New York Rangers

Lundqvist1 (2)

Ben Lovejoy put some serious mustard on this shot, but Lundqvist was able to find it through a screen!

#7
Carey Price – Montreal Canadiens

Price showing off his best Hasek impersonation! He can get it done so many ways.

#6
Scott Darling – Chicago Blackhawks

Darling2

Darling absolutely stole game one back for the Blackhawks with saves like this.

#5
Pekka Rinne – Nashville Predators

Rinne2

Rinne doesn’t quit on this puck and makes an…interesting save. Then he takes a knee to the head!

#4
Carey Price – Montreal Canadiens

Price1 (2)

Great move by Zibanejad, and Price misses the poke check – but luckily he backed it up with his pad.

#3
Petr Mrázek – Detroit Red Wings

Mrazek1

Mrázek has his glove in perfect position for this save, then adds a little bit of flair for good measure.

#2
Henrik Lundqvist – New York Rangers

Lundqvist2

Pittsburgh is in big, big trouble if this guy is on his game.

#1
Scott Darling – Chicago Blackhawks

Darling1

Chicago’s playoff hopes now rely on the big Scott Darling. As long as he keeps making saves like this, they’ll be fine!
