There were eight games around the NHL on Tuesday, and a few goalies were in very fine form indeed.

Here are five saves that simply can't be missed:

1. Bobrovsky's blocker

The reigning Vezina Trophy winner is making a bid for a repeat performance, and this save by Sergei Bobrovsky should lead-off a candidacy video prepared by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

2. Lehner's leather

The Buffalo Sabres fell to the Pittsburgh Penguins in overtime, but Robin Lehner did his best to keep his team in it with this unreal save off his glove.

3. Luongo's larceny

After falling to the ice to keep the Dallas attack at bay, Roberto Luongo of the Florida Panthers recovered in time to make a neat blocker save, after which he calmly snagged the puck out of mid-air.

4. Scott Wedge-wall

Scott Wedgewood was pressed into duty by the Arizona Coyotes in relief of Antti Raanta, and impressed with this sweet glove save off the stick of Blake Wheeler.

5. Bonus Bobrovsky

Bobrovsky was so good against Montreal, he makes it in twice.

Here he thwarted a shorthanded breakaway opportunity for Paul Byron.

A few defensemen are on the hook for dinner after these saves.
