Tag: Save of the Week

New York Rangers v Pittsburgh Penguins

Vote for the Save of the Week (March 21-27)

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.

Henrik Lundqvist wins Save of the Week (March 14-20)

New York Rangers v Pittsburgh Penguins

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 general, I tend to praise quality over quantity in most situations. Sure, it’s cheaper to buy a 12-pack of Milwaukee’s Best instead of some fancy import, but that doesn’t mean it’s a better idea.

Yet every now and then, you get one of those lucky moments of simultaneous quality and quantity. Henrik Lundqvist’s Save of the Week included two great glove saves, so perhaps that explains why he narrowly took the March 14-20th award.

Cam Ward wins Save of the Week (March 7-13)

It’s not often that a goalie wins a Save of the Night award when he made a save but then allowed a goal on a rebound. It’s even more uncommon when that same play wins Save of the Week, but that’s what happened with Cam Ward for last week.

To be fair, it was a pretty great save before his defense left him out to dry. Something tells me that there are some supportive Carolina Hurricanes fans at PHT, though.
