NHL Saves of the Week: November 23 – 29

NHL Saves of the Week: November 23 – 29

Cory Schneider has been having a pretty solid season, but was flying under the radar for most NHL fans. With two games against Montreal this week in which he stood on his head, that has since changed. A pair of his incredible stops have made their way up the list this week, and has vaulted the New Jersey Devils into the thick of the wildcard race.

This week’s list is rounded out by a headfirst diving save by Craig Anderson of the Ottawa Senators, and a brilliant overtime glove save by Boston’s Tuukka Rask. Check those saves out and more in the top ten saves of the week for November 23rd to 29th:
