Ilya Bryzgalov made 20 saves in a 4-0 shutout performance against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday, as his Minnesota Wild continue to hold down the first wild card slot in the West.

And while 20 shots is pretty low, Bryzgalov had to be sharp against the Pens' ever-dangerous snipers.

Just take a look at this 10-bell save on James Neal.

Bryzgalov had to dive across the crease and reach out his stick to stop Neal from capitalizing on a glorious rebound.

The shutout gave Bryzgalov three on the season and two as a member of the Wild. It also put Minnesota on the verge of clinching a playoff spot.
