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.

Sergei Bobrovsky made spectacular save after spectacular save against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night, but his first great save was probably his best. Only three minutes into the important Atlantic Division game, Tyler Kennedy slipped behind the Flyers defense for the most clear-cut breakaway you’ll
ever see. Bobrovsky calmly let Kennedy make a forehand/backhand move before coming back to his strong side—only to find Bobrovsky’s leg pad waiting to stone him. If it wasn’t for the Flyers’ rookie netminder, there’s no way Philadelphia would have even earned a single point. In recognition of his play, we hereby award him with the Save of the Night.
