FACEBOOK 5 TOP PLAY: NIEMI'S SPRAWLING SAVE VS CHICAGO - JANUARY 15, 2012

In the first period of the game vs the Chicago Blackhawks this past Sunday, goaltender Antti Niemi made a diving save to prevent the Blackhawks from getting on the board. With just over ten minutes to go in the first period, Chicago forward Jonathan Toews setup a perfect pass to Patrick Kane who was alone in front of the net. However, Niemi made a spectacular diving save to his left to prevent the goal. Fans have voted a save by Niemi as the Top Play of the Week twice this year, and both of those Top Plays have been versus his former team, the Blackhawks.
