It's a sporting analogy - you've just saved the ball from going into your own goal. In conversation, "good save" is a comment used after someone has said or done something to prevent an embarrassing situation. A: Who's that woman? Her dress sense is awful. B: That's my wife. A. ...-ly good! Her dress sense is awfully good! C: Good save.

I think it is clear from context. A goalkeeper makes a good save when he does something unusual to stop a goal. That's a good save from Van De Saar. An easy save is, well, an easy save.
