Tag: Save of the Week

Ilya Bryzgalov, Dany Heatley

Ilya Bryzgalov’s diving stop earns him the Save of the Week (April 4-10)

Every week, Pro Hockey Talk will ask our readers to choose the best goal and save of that seven-day period. Sometimes there might not be seven nominees, whether that be because there weren’t enough great clips or one person received multiple awards. Either way, readers ultimately get to choose each week’s lucky winners.

Like we discussed with Nathan Gerbe’s Goal of the Week win, sometimes these voting results are a bit perplexing. One goal or save seems like one of the best clips of the season, but it doesn’t even win the weekly award. Meanwhile, a relatively normal feat ends up running away with the results.

Thankfully, the right goalie won Save of the Week for the final week of the 2010-11 season. Ilya Bryzgalov made the kind of save that could get some consideration for the best of the entire campaign, but he barely beat Tuukka Rask for April 4-10. To be fair, Rask’s save was pretty amazing in its own right, but the appropriate winner is Bryzgalov. Check out the results in the poll below.

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.

Jhonas Enroth doesn’t receive a lot of starts with Ryan Miller in front of him – in fact, Patrick Lalime is technically the backup – but he’s making the most of his opportunities. Best of all, he’s thriving when the Buffalo Sabres need him the most.

Enroth was given the third star of the week award from the NHL and PHT readers named him the winner of the Save of the Week for March 28-April 3. Check out the poll results, which showed a close race between Enroth and Detroit Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard.

Marc-Andre Fleury wins Save of the Week (March 21-27)

Every week, Pro Hockey Talk will ask our readers to choose the best goal and save of that seven-day period. Sometimes there might not be seven nominees, whether that be because there weren’t enough great clips or one person received multiple awards. Either way, readers ultimately get to choose each week’s lucky winners.

In the beginning of the season, many people looked at Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury as a goat and wondered if Brent Johnson should actually be the No. 1 starter.

Yet the team’s $5 million netminder got his act together after a shaky first month or so and produced a good enough season to earn an All-Star nod and the team’s MVP award. Pittsburgh keeps leaning on him as they deal with what looked like crippling injuries and Fleury keeps delivering great results.

His work included another Save of the Week-worthy stop, this time for March 21-27th, as you can see from these poll results.
