The case for Bobrovsky: Twice selected to the NHL All-Star Game as the standout goaltender for the Columbus Blue Jackets, Sergei Bobrovsky has cemented himself as one of the top netminders in the league as the Vezina Trophy winner in both 2012-13 and 2016-17.
Take out the two games in which Bobrovsky gave up eight goals and the Russian has been among the most consistent goaltenders in the league, posting a .919 save percentage on the year with a 2.48 goals-against average. He's been dominant in stretches this season, including a seven-game run from Oct. 30 to Nov. 17 in which he went 5-2, gave up just 10 goals, and had a .954 save percentage.
And when it comes to spectacular saves, Bobrovsky is still one of the top cops on the force.
