Rookie goaltender Jhonas Enroth kept Buffalo in the playoff race this week, with 5 of a possible 6 points in relief of injured Sabre Ryan Miller. He was named the NHL’s 3rd star of the week for his play.
But Enroth’s biggest save was probably on Saturday at Carolina, when the Swede stopped Jussi Jokinen without a mask — first a point-blank shot, then two subsequent swipes at the puck.
Frustrated by a loose mask, Enroth tossed it to the net behind him. He was still able to move from his left to his right quickly enough to rob Jokinen, and stop two attempts after that.
