OK, the game was long over and there were more important saves tonight (Henrik Lundqvist made some pivotal stops to keep the New York Rangers ahead of the New Jersey Devils).
But sometimes you just have to award style instead substance. This is one of those times: Antero Niittymaki made an impressive splitting save on a breakaway chance by Jarome Iginla.
