Front-runner: Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers - He's played in 22 of the Rangers' 24 starts and his 1,326:53 minutes played tops the league. His .931 save percentage is third overall and the 1.81 goals-against average trails only super-sub Chris Osgood of the Wings. Lundqvist's play is a major reason the Broadway Blueshirts have overcome a sluggish start to the season and he's received a lot less offensive support than most of his contemporaries.
...there has been a lot of first quater award stories lately and Lundqvist's name is brought up in every one for either Vezina or Hart.
...although I feel Lundqvist has been a little off lately, he definitely deserves all the attention he is receiving right now.
