    1) henrik lundqvist
    2) I chose Henrik Lundqvist because I think he has just played great overall, threw out all of the playoffs.
    3) three off the best skills Henrik has would have to be. His reflex, low shots, and his mental part of th game.

  2. Comment by Trevor Devlin

    1) Braden Holtby
    2) He posted a .944 save % and a 1.71 GAA while leading his team to a first round win over the Islanders and forcing the Rangers to game 7 in the second round.
    3) His 3 best skills are his “calm” style of play, his flexibility, and his capability to make a big save at the right time.

    I believe that the top goalie is Corey Crawford. I chose him because he is my favourite goalie. He recovers quickily after a shot and a rebound. He is focused. He has confidence.

    1) Pekka Rinne
    2) Although he’s struggled in the first 2 games of the finals, he carried nashville through Chicago all be it playing behind a solid defense. The reason I’ve chosen him though is because without a doubt Nashville wouldn’t be in the position they are now
    3) he covers the bottom part of the net as good if not better than anyone, he’s puck handling is a very underrated part of his game, he does a great job Not over challenging which he can afford to do because of his large stature in the crease
