NHL Saves of the Week: November 24 – 30

NHL Saves of the Week: November 24 – 30

This week’s best saves are headlined by a shootout snare from Jaroslav Halak, some brilliant hand-eye co-ordination from Cam Ward, and a pair of goal line glove saves. You have to see them to believe them! Here are the NHL saves of the week from November 24th to 30th:

Pekka Rinne – Nashville Predators


It must be nice to have long legs like Pekka Rinne!

Braden Holtby – Washington Capitals


Some excellent work from Holtby, here. He’s in control of every movement, and makes it look so easy.

Cam Ward – Carolina Hurricanes


Regardless if this was hitting the post or going in, this is some fantastic hand-eye co-ordination from Cam Ward.

Darcy Kuemper – Minnesota Wild


Kuemper gets back to the post for a giant diving stop!

Jaroslav Halak – New York Islanders


Giroux thought he had Halak beaten in the shootout, but goalies don’t give up!

Karri Ramo – Calgary Flames


Ramo pushes to his right to adjust his positioning just a bit, and flashes the leather.

Jhonas Enroth – Buffalo Sabres


Insane stretch from Enroth! He stopped 40+ shots again in this game.

Antti Niemi – San Jose Sharks


“Nemo” comes up huge for the Sharks with the left pad robbery.

Roberto Luongo – Florida Panthers


Luongo injured his arm on this play and had to exit the game, but oh what a save it was!

Frederik Andersen – Anaheim Ducks


Andersen steals a sure goal from Hossa right off the goal line, then stops a rebound chance for good measure!
