While watching this Devan Dubnyk save on Olli Jokinen of the Calgary Flames from Saturday night, keep in mind that the Edmonton Oilers goalie is 6-foot-6 … so this nimble move to snag the puck with his glove was pretty stellar:

There haven't been many "save of the year" candidates recently in the NHL, so this one should be in the mix. If Oilers teammate Magnus Paajarvi had a vote, Dubnyk would receive it; via CHED's Dan Tencer on Twitter, quoting Paajarvi tonight:

"If that isn't the save of the year, I don't know. He saved me because I was on the ice and would have been minus."

Killer reactions on that play from Dubnyk. This was one of those shots that, in real time, you're thinking is a tap-in for Jokinen. Dubnyk had other designs, apparently.
