With the Stanley Cup Final featuring two of the NHL's top goaltenders in the New York Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist and Los Angeles Kings' Jonathan Quick, it's only fitting to take a look at some of the greatest saves—made by them and others—from the 2014 playoffs.

There have been plenty to choose from, and ranking them is next to impossible. Some may prefer the flashy glove stops, while others enjoy the quick jab of a blocker. The old-school stacked pads bring a nostalgic feeling to the mix, but a butterfly-era sliding-split save looks both painful and impressive.

Other things to consider include the time of the game, the score, the play leading up to the stop and whether the goaltender's team is up in the series or fighting to come back.
