Every week, Pro Hockey Talk will ask our readers to choose the best goal and save of that seven-day period. Sometimes there might not be seven nominees, whether that be because there weren’t enough great clips or one person received multiple awards. Either way, readers ultimately get to choose each week’s lucky winners.

In the beginning of the season, many people looked at Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury as a goat and wondered if Brent Johnson should actually be the No. 1 starter.

Yet the team’s $5 million netminder got his act together after a shaky first month or so and produced a good enough season to earn an All-Star nod and the team’s MVP award. Pittsburgh keeps leaning on him as they deal with what looked like crippling injuries and Fleury keeps delivering great results.

His work included another Save of the Week-worthy stop, this time for March 21-27th, as you can see from these poll results.
