(You can still vote for last week’s best save here. Hurry, though, because the results will be posted soon.)

There were some fantastic goals last week, which might explain why the poll results ended up being so excruciatingly close.

It ended up being a three horse race between Atlanta Thrashers rookie Alexander Burmistrov (the winner), funny last named Philadelphia Flyers forward Andreas Nodl and Detroit Red Wings maestro Henrik Zetterberg.

Burmistrov scored a beautiful – if somewhat inconsequential – goal against the Washington Capitals. Nodl employed a spin-o-rama for his outstanding entry. Meanwhile, Pavel Datsyuk played a huge role in Zetterberg’s goal, which tied a game the Red Wings would later win against the Calgary Flames.

Anyway, let’s take a look at just how close the voting ended up being.

As you can see, Burmistrov earned one more vote than Nodl and two more than Zetterberg.

Here is that Burmistrov goal:
