His stats aren’t incredible — .919 save percentage, 2.19 goals-allowed average — but he boasts 26 wins, third-most in the league, along with three shutouts in helping L.A. back from missing the 2015 postseason.. Goaltender. Previous: N/Ath. Jonathan Quick. 7. team. 67

72. He’d have to go hog-wild in the second half to even get inside the top five, but 23-year-old Mrazek’s .932 save percentage (tied for second in the league) and 2.03 goals-against average (tied for third) can’t be ignored on a still-young Detroit team that currently holds a divisional playoff spot.. Goaltender. Previous: N/Ath. Petr Mrazek. 6. team

Previous: N/Ath. Ben Bishop. 5. team. 23. Tampa has begun reverting to its 2014-15 form behind some strong play from Bishop, who ended his previous season with an exploded groin in the Stanley Cup Final. His 2.02 goals-against average is second in the league, and his .926 save percentage is no slouch, either for a team tied with the Red Wings in points.. Goaltender

team. 85. The Vezina race will be between the last four on these rankings until further notice, and it starts with Schneider. On a New Jersey team just outside a playoff spot and with no legitimate scoring threats. Schneider has dragged the Devils to competence with a 2.03 goals-against average (tied for third in the league) and .929 save percentage (tied for sixth). He also boasts four shutouts.. Goaltender. Previous: N/Ath. Cory Schneider. 4

team. 87. He may lead all goaltenders in Hart voting, but the Vezina is different. Still, Luongo has been insanely impressive for the surprising Panthers, ranking near the top of the league in all major goaltending categories.. Goaltender. Previous: N/Ath. Roberto Luongo. 3

94. Outside <strong><a href=. Goaltender. Previous: N/Ath. Corey Crawford. 2. team

Goaltender. Previous: N/Ath. Braden Holtby. 1. team. 19. He’s taken a few dents recently, but the award is still his to lose at this point. His 30 wins pace the NHL by two, and his 2.07 goals-against average and .929 save percentage are both at least top-six for a Washington team that is steamrolling its way to the President’s Trophy.
