The first two months of the NHL season have produced multiple candidates for Save of the Year. On Sunday, Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Robin Lehner threw his hat into the ring with a tremendous stop against the Arizona Coyotes.

About halfway through the third period and with the Coyotes on the power play in a tie game, both teams were engaged in a battle for the puck along the boards. As that was taking place, Arizona's Clayton Keller made his way to the slot. The puck eventually bounced out to Christian Dvorak, who made a sneaky backhand pass to Keller, who was all alone in front and didn't hesitate as he fired a shot right for the net.

Though it looked as if Arizona was about to take the lead, Lehner . . . well, did his job — in style. The 28-year-old netminder dived, stacked the pads and somehow managed to get his glove on the puck to keep the score even.

Lehner boasts a 6-5-4 record and 2.71 goals-against average in 16 games for the Blackhawks this season. His .929 save percentage ranks ninth in the NHL.
