Despite being the 30th ranked team in the NHL the Buffalo Sabres have two pretty solid goaltenders between the pipes and both goaltenders have submitted Save of the Year candidates in the last couple of games. Oddly enough both saves were similar but Jhonas Enroth seemed to find his inner Hasek.
This is just a fun poll today to lighten the mood after a brutal loss the hit a lot of fans right in the… well you know, the feels. Take a look at the gifs and videos and if you want read my descriptions and vote for which save you liked best. It’s as simple as that folks! Sit back and enjoy these two amazing saves by both Sabres netminders.
First we’ll go over Ryan Miller‘s save
That was a great game-saving save by Mr. Miller on Mikhail Grabovski and because of this save the Sabres went on to win the game in the shootout. Nicely done Mr. Miller and your new pads are looking quite nice with the white road uniforms! Look at the two Sabres defencemen doing nothing to help Miller out until it’s too late, that sums up the Sabres season pretty well eh?
Next we’ll move onto the more recent save by Mr. Jhonas Enroth who was not to be outdone by his counterpart.
Enroth didn’t need his stick to make this sweet save against the Flyers where he channelled his inner Hasek with this blocker save. Unfortunately Enroth and the Sabres couldn’t get the job done against the Flyers despite having the lead twice, but none the less he played a solid game. Props to Brian Flynn for tripping Enroth and giving us this beautiful save.
Ryan Miller will likely be back between the pipes tonight when the Sabres and their rival Toronto Maple Leafs square-off in the second half of a back-to-back. Can Miller give us another jaw dropping save tonight?
Which save from the last two games did you like best? Ryan Miller’s game saver or Enroth’s best Hasek imitation?
