On Saturday, Devils goalie Martin Brodeur followed a quick body save with a sprawling glove save against the Islanders. After New York winger Michael Grabner took a fast shot on Brodeur, Marty dropped a rebound right in front of an oncoming Kyle Okposo. Mere seconds later, Okposo was absolutely robbed by Brodeur's glove.

In Tuesday's Sabres-Islanders game, Sabres defenseman Brayden McNabb just leveled Frans Nielsen at center ice. In the neutral zone, Nielsen caught a pass and was knocked right off his skates as he looked for the puck.

On Wednesday, Devils goalie Martin Brodeur made another bid for save of the year. After his first unbelievable save against the Leafs' Phil Kessel on Nov. 2, Brodeur upped the ante by robbing Sabres captain Jason Pominville on a point blank shot.

In Thursday's Panthers-Blues game, St. Louis center Patrik Berglund delivered what arguably is the most crushing hit of the year. While turning around near the boards to make a play on the puck, Berglund ran over an oncoming Dmitry Kulikov, knocking the Panther completely off his feet.

On Tuesday, Avalanche forward Matt Duchene mesmerized the Penguins and their home crowd. Duchene caught a pass behind his back, then went through his legs and buried a backhand shot that no one, including Pens goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, had a chance of stopping.

You Decide: What's been the goal of the year?

After seeing Evgeni Malkin and Matt Duchene score unbelievable goals on Tuesday night -- against each other -- NHL.com wants you to vote on the best goal of the year.

Was Malkin's tremendous move through rookie Gabriel Landeskog's legs and then his finish around Semyon Varlamov good enough to be tabbed goal of the year?

Or what about Duchene's ability to catch a pass behind him, put the puck through his legs, and then backhand a shot past Marc-Andre Fleury? Is that the best of the best?

Let's also not forget about three other great goals from earlier this season.

We all remember Stars forward Jamie Benn dangling the puck through four Blue Jackets defenders before beating Steve Mason with a great shot to the top shelf.

Then there was Claude Giroux's goal on opening night against the Bruins. The highly-skilled forward managed to slide the puck by Zdeno Chara using his skates, and then slipped the puck past Tim Thomas as he soared through the air.

Jeff Skinner, last year's Rookie of the Year, also put his name in the goal of the year discussion with his beauty against the Lightning. After working the puck off the boards, Skinner managed to keep the puck on his stick and snake through three defenders before firing a laser past Dwayne Roloson.

During the clash between Western Conference-leading Dallas and East power Washington, Stars forward Eric Nystrom came through with a magnificent individual effort. Nystrom skated down the right side, jammed on the breaks and wristed a shot past Michal Neuvirth while soaring by Caps defenseman John Carlson.

Flyers netminder Ilya Bryzgalov delivered arguably his nicest save since joining his new team in a matchup against the Blue Jackets. Bryzgalov snagged a Samuel Pahlsson shot out of mid air with a quick glove save.

Earlier in the week, Dion Phaneuf made a bid for the best hit of the season against the Boston Bruins. Seems like the Toronto Maple Leafs hard-hitting captain is up for that distinction every week. In this instance, Boston's Chris Kelly skated into the Toronto zone where Dion Phaneuf stepped up and sent Kelly flying to the ice.

On Wednesday, eventual Hall-of-Famer Martin Brodeur made his bid for save of the year. With the Maple Leafs applying pressure early in the third period, Phil Kessel was given a golden opportunity to score. The NHL's leading scorer stared at an open net and fired the puck towards it, but Brodeur lunged across the crease to make a remarkable stick save, leaving Kessel laughing in amazement.

In Saturday's Flyers-Hurricanes game, rookie forward Zac Rinaldo brought the Philadelphia faithful to their feet a few minutes into the second period by deliving a booming hit on Carolina defenseman Jamie McBain. With McBain backing into his own blueline while carrying the puck, Rinaldo skated in from the side and caught McBain off guard.

From great finishes to lunging saves, this week featureed plenty of incredible highlights to chose from. All three plays from this week's nominees occured on Tuesday night.

First we saw Buffalo defenseman Robyn Regehr thump Tampa Bay captain Vincent Lecavalier. Lecavalier went to dump the puck in front of the Buffalo bench, and Regehr stepped up to hammer Vinny into the boards.

Then we witnessed a remarkable play from Chicago's Patrick Kane. The crafty forward skated down the right wing with his head up the whole way. He then worked over a defenseman to make a flawless tape-to-tape spin-o-rama pass to teammate Marian Hossa, who quickly buried the puck past Jonas Hiller.
