Description: Boston goalie Tuukka Rask led the league with seven shutouts in 2013-14. He went 36-15-6 with a 2.04 GAA and a .930 SV% and should be a finalist for the Vezina Trophy.
Insight: Rask benefited from having one of the NHL's best possession teams in front of him and had to make just 1,526 saves, 14th-most in the NHL and 341 behind leader Semyon Varlamov. That may hurt him in the Vezina competition. Still, it was another excellent season for the 27-year-old.

Insight: Fantasy owners have to be disappointed with how Anderson (24-16-8, 3.06 GAA) has performed this season but at least he can go out on a high note after this outing. Anderson's four clean slates this season are his most since 2009-10 when he played for the Avalanche.
