Theo Robs Gabby - 28.62% of fan votes
Theodore kept the score tied at 1-1 nine minutes into the second period with this spectacular save. Marian Gaborik – the Wild’s leading scorer in the regular season – had a golden opportunity to score his first goal of the playoffs from the goalmouth. Gaborik took a touch pass and put a shot on a seemingly open net, but Theodore was able to stretch his left pad out to make the stop.

Stastny Scores Winner - 27.30% of fan votes
Paul Stastny’s first career playoff goal turned out to be the game-winner for the Avalanche. Stastny corralled a pass from Milan Hejduk in front of the Minnesota net and flipped a backhand attempt over Niklas Backstrom.
