Aside from the occasional night off – or the even less common instance when a save or goal isn’t deemed worthy – the gang at PHT will decide which tally or stop is the best of any given night. Once those two winners are determined, we’ll share our reasoning (and most importantly, the video clip for each) in posts for your viewing pleasure.
We here at Pro Hockey Talk would like to thank both Curtis McElhinney and Timo Pielmeier for making our job easier. When looking for the Goal of the Night, we’ll scour all of the big saves by each and every team on any given night. Thanks to the Ducks netminders on Saturday night, we didn’t have quite as many saves to review as usual. So Ducks goalies, we salute you!
A man who made plenty of saves was Craig Anderson. In his first start as an Ottawa Senator, he stopped all 47 shots fired by the rival Maple Leafs including 3 stops in the shootout. But no save was bigger (or more spectacular) than Anderson’s save on Phil Kessel in overtime.
