I almost feel a little bad about giving “The Bulin Wall” two save of the night awards in one week, but he simply keeps making breathtaking saves. (Click here for the November 5th winner.)

Last time, Khabibulin made an unusual save by some sublime combination of luck, skill and guile. This time around, he showed insane reflexes by turning aside Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane’s attempts in another impressive display of goaltending.

He might only own a 4-6-1 record, but Khabibulin hasn’t been the problem so far in Edmonton.
