Goaltending is about technique, but it's also about knowing where the game is headed – and Rangers star Henrik Lundqvist illustrated that with a stupendous save Sunday night against Edmonton.

Lundqvist's Blueshirts were trailing the visiting Oilers 2-1 midway through regulation time when Edmonton winger Benoit Pouliot made a beautiful move before passing to teammate Justin Schultz for what looked to be a sure goal. Emphasis on "looked to be":

How's that for a goal-of-the-year candidate for you? Lundqvist's Rangers lost the game, but his ability to read the play and power over to his left in time to get his glove on Schultz's shot is a great example of how positional awareness and instinct come together in spectacular goaltending.
