NHL Saves of the Week: March 7 – 13

NHL Saves of the Week: March 7 – 13

Chad Johnson is back at it again! He made another glove save while diving back in his crease this week, which is becoming a bit of a signature move for the Buffalo Sabres goaltender. Jake Allen of the St. Louis Blues, and Andrei Vasilevskiy both appear on the list twice with fantastic saves. Both of Vasilevskiy’s saves came from the same game against Philadelphia, and one came on a 2-on-0!

Check out those saves and more in the NHL saves of the week for March 7th to 13th:
