Stanley Cup Playoff Saves of the Week: May 18 – 24

Stanley Cup Playoff Saves of the Week: May 18 – 24

There are only four teams left, and with fewer games to choose from, it should be harder to come up with these lists. That has not been the case as Ben Bishop, Henrik Lundqvist, Corey Crawford, and Frederik Andersen have all made spectacular saves at times throughout the conference finals. The Blackhawks/Ducks series has also given plenty of overtime saves to choose from! Check out all of the top saves from May 18th to 24th in the Stanley Cup Playoff saves of the week:

#10
Ben Bishop – Tampa Bay Lightning

Bishop2

Marty St. Louis can’t get the puck up high enough to get over Bishop’s pad!

#9
Frederik Andersen – Anaheim Ducks

Andersen1

Andersen’s glove has been working all series long.

#8
Corey Crawford – Chicago Blackhawks

Crawford2

Perfect read by Crawford to slide to his right for the stop.

#7
Henrik Lundqvist – New York Rangers

Lundqvist1

Killorn actually gets a pretty solid one-timer off, but Lundqvist is there with the pad.

#6
Frederik Andersen – Anaheim Ducks

Andersen2 (2)

Andersen stays calm and cool on this overtime breakaway.

#5
Henrik Lundqvist – New York Rangers

Lundqvist3

Leaving Stamkos unattended in the slot is never a good idea, but Lundqvist bails his team out.

#4
Ben Bishop – Tampa Bay Lightning

Bishop1

Big save at one end, then the Lightning would go down and score at the other end.

#3
Corey Crawford – Chicago Blackhawks

Crawford3

Another clutch overtime save, this time it’s Crawford on Perry.

#2
Henrik Lundqvist – New York Rangers

Lundqvist1 (2)

Great glove save, and the angle shows just how stiff Lundqvist’s glove actually is.

#1
Frederik Andersen – Anaheim Ducks

Andersen3

Saad fires a rocket aimed at the top corner, but Andersen flashes some incredible leather!
