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.

Some nights, there’s a flat-out obvious choice for the evening’s best goal or save.

Sometimes, it just comes down to the best clip or the most important moment. Kari Lehtonen‘s March 7th Save of the Night winner is a good example of the former, as Lehtonen made a great kick stop but was fortunate when the rebound went just a touch wide of the Dallas Stars’ net.

More than anything else, it’s an interesting clip to watch, as the puck almost has a mind of its own. Check it out below.

    You kidding right? Braden Holtby’s stick save was was better and this was not even a save he was out of the net.
