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? 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.
Vote now and feel free to comment on the plays as well.

Quote of the Day

It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
