Vote for the Save of the Week (November 22-28)

To celebrate the best moments of each week, we’ll put up a poll to see which goal/save/whatever was the most amazing of a given seven days. We might not always have one per day and sometimes there will be more than seven to choose from, but all you need to do is vote for your favorite.

Because putting a handful of videos in one post will bog down some internet connections, we’ll simply insert a link to each post.

November 22

Save of the Night: Miikka Kiprusoff.

November 23

Save of the Night: Ilya Bryzgalov.

November 24

Save of the Night: Sergei Bobrovsky.

November 25

Save of the Night: Martin Gerber.

November 26

Save of the Night: Marc-Andre Fleury.

November 27

Save of the Night: Miikka Kiprusoff (again).

November 28

Save of the Night: Semyon Varlamov.

In the fine tradition of Tim Thomas, Nikolai Khabibulin and Carey Price, Kiprusoff earned the apparently not-so-rare honor of two nominations for the same save of the week award. The question is, are either one of those good enough to win the save of the week? That’s for you to decide.

    Wild lose Graovac (groin) for 2-3 weeks

    After making the Wild out of training camp, Tyler Graovac got some bad news on Tuesday — head coach Mike Yeo said Graovac would miss the next 2-3 weeks with a groin strain.

    Graovac, 22, played just under 14 minutes in Minnesota’s crazy 5-4 comeback win over Colorado in the season-opener, but sat out Saturday’s win over St. Louis.

    At 6-foot-5 and 200 pounds, Graovac was a notable physical presence in the Wild lineup, and is an intriguing prospect — he impressed with AHL Iowa last year, scoring 21 goals and 46 points in 73 games.

    Already without Eberle, the Oilers could also be missing Hall tonight

    Taylor Hall

    Taylor Hall is sick and reportedly “doubtful” for tonight’s game in Dallas.

    Hall did not skate with the Oilers this morning. If he can’t play, Edmonton’s top two lines against the Stars could feature Ryan Nugent-Hopkins between wingers Teddy Purcell and Benoit Pouliot, followed by Connor McDavid centering Lauri Korpikoski and Nail Yakupov.

    The Oilers — forced to start the season without top-six winger Jordan Eberle — have scored just once in their first two games, losing 3-1 in St. Louis and 2-0 in Nashville.

    Edmonton returns home after tonight’s contest to play St. Louis on Thursday. Then it’s back out on the road for games against Calgary and Vancouver.
