As the NHL regular season begins to wind down, the goalies seem to be heating up, because this week was jam-packed with fantastic saves! Scott Wedgewood, who is filling in for the injured Cory Schneider in New Jersey, makes his first appearance on the countdown. He is performing extremely well in his first taste of NHL action, and came extremely close to posting two shutouts in his first three career games.
Two saves this week had to be reviewed by officials. Both Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers, and Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings made sensational saves right on the goal line. They literally could not get any closer to going in, but the goalies kept them out!
Check out those saves and more in the top ten NHL saves of the week for March 21st to 27th.
