NHL Saves of the Week: February 8 – 14

This week’s top saves list is highlighted by a group of goaltenders that are currently fighting for their number one jobs. Frederik Andersen, who has been subject to trade rumours, appears on the list twice, as does Kari Lehtonen, who is battling it out with Antti Niemi in Dallas. Carter Hutton is making a strong case for more ice time in Nashville, as he also made one of the best saves of the week. Find out which goaltender comes out on top!

Enjoy the top ten NHL saves of the week for February 8th to 14th:

Jonas Hiller – Calgary Flames


Great push off the net for this overtime save by Hiller.

Cam Talbot – Edmonton Oilers


Excellent first save through a screen, and an even better second save!

Andrei Vasilevskiy – Tampa Bay Lightning


Vasilevskiy shows off his ridiculous flexibility and long legs.

Kari Lehtonen – Dallas Stars


Lehtonen can’t control the first shot, but makes up for it with a massive glove stop!

Frederik Andersen – Anaheim Ducks


Long push across the crease for Andersen, but he makes it look easy!

Louis Domingue – Arizona Coyotes


Great passing play forces Domingue to make a huge diving glove stop!

Frederik Andersen – Anaheim Ducks


Now this just isn’t fair.

Jonas Gustavsson – Boston Bruins


Gustavsson gets across just in time to stop the wraparound with the paddle!

Carter Hutton – Nashville Predators


Is it possible that Carter Hutton could take over as the starter for Nashville?

Kari Lehtonen – Dallas Stars


Three passes through the slot, low in the zone? Hats off to Kari Lehtonen on this one.
