NHL Saves of the Week: May 4 – 10

NHL Saves of the Week: May 4 – 10

It’s the second round, and only eight teams remain in the hunt for the Stanley Cup. The Rangers/Capitals series has been a treat for goalie lovers. Braden Holtby and Henrik Lundqvist have dazzled every single night, Corey Crawford and Frederik Andersen have already punched their ticket to the conference finals, but none of their stops can compete with Carey Price’s “monumental save” in game five of the Canadiens/Lightning series. You’ll see that and more in the NHL saves of the week for May 4th to 10th:
