Default The Bigger Play- Holmes or Fleury?!

So Holmes catches the ball to win the SB, Fleury pushes across the goal face to flop in front of the shot and save a goal...

Which is the bigger play? Both of them saved a Championship win.

both holmes and harrison might share the title of greatest or most significant play in sb history.

fleury stopped a puck.

no question, it is holmes.

but oh what a save it was. it was 100% open net, and lidstrom had about 50% to shoot at by the time fleury reacted.

IMO, Holmes as he had the more difficult play to make.

Holmes made a finess/skill play............Harrison made an all heart/effort play......

Me personally I would take the all heart/effort play all day any day over finness/skill.....

These are hairs that I'm not willing to split. They both came in the most enormous of moments and both were incredibly clutch. I'd say the Holmes catch is a great feat of hand-eye coordination(to make the catch) and body control(to stay in bounds), while the Fleury save was a great feat of reaction time(to read and react to that rebound) and body control(goalies aren't supposed to be able to get across the crease like that without getting up. He did all of that FROM the butterfly position. UNBELIEVABLE.). I hate to compare them because it's apple and oranges, but if I had to I'd really say that they're both on equal ground as absolutely EPIC game saving plays, and two of the GREATEST plays in the history of our great sports town, THE CITY OF CHAMPIONS!!!!

They was both great plays but I give the edge to Holmes. That was one of the best plays I have seen in a long time. I have to admit that Fleury played one heck of a game last night. He made some great saves to help the Pens.

It took Fleury to play his best game of the season to win Game 7. This team came of age in this game. It is a young and talented team which should keep them competitive for awhile. Just start at the top with ML and you know why. Very similar to the Rooneys style.

Harrison, no doubt, the INT ws worth 14 points

There are so many idiots on the internet boards that dont understand this

How many time have you seen a LB return an INT 100 yards for TD? the play took 18 plus seconds
