You Decide: Most acrobatic save of postseason
Which netminder had the most acrobatic save of the postseason: Martin Brodeur on Marian Gaborik or Jonathan Quick on Radim Vrbata?
 

NHL.com wants you -- the fan -- to vote on the most compelling play, moment or topic of the week. We'll select goals, hits, saves, plus other clips and subjects from the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs that require your opinion. There's no wrong answer ... we simply want to know what you think.
 
With the Los Angeles Kings and New Jersey Devils set to collide in the 2012 Stanley Cup Final, the past few days have given us a chance to reflect on the game-breaking plays that got each team to this point. So as Vezina Trophy finalist Jonathan Quick squares off against all-time wins leader Martin Brodeur, it's time to take a look at each goaltender's most acrobatic save of the postseason and determine which was the more spectacular sequence.
     
1. Martin Brodeur uses a scorpion-like kick save to deny Marian Gaborik and protect the Devils' lead in Game 2 of the East Finals.

2. Jonathan Quick makes a sprawling toe stop on Radim Vrbata in Game 5 of the West Finals, setting the tone in L.A.'s series-clinching win.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
