Aside from the occasional night off – or the even less common instance when a save or goal isn’t deemed worthy – the gang at PHT will decide which tally or stop is the best of any given night. Once those two winners are determined, we’ll share our reasoning (and most importantly, the video clip for each) in posts for your viewing pleasure.
Does something “special” happen to Antti Niemi somewhere around New Year’s? Does he make a resolution to become one of the most reliable goalies in the NHL?
It sure seems that way, as the San Jose Sharks goalie has been outstanding for his new team in the last two months or so. The Finnish netminder is looking an awful lot like the guy who won a Stanley Cup for the Chicago Blackhawks. The Pacific Division is a cluttered mess of quality, but the Sharks have a fighter’s chance to win it with Niemi.
As you can see in this, the best save of February 15th.
