It’s not often that you see two saves that could be the best of a given season in the same night, but Corey Crawford and Tim Thomas did just that on Saturday.

So, which one impressed you more? Would both be save of the year candidates for 2013-14?

Update: Both goalies lost in overtime on Saturday, as Andrei Markov collected the marker for Montreal against Chicago while Marek Zidlicky finished Jaromir Jagr’s record-breaking assist to win it for New Jersey vs. Florida.
