Rinne Records Rare Double-Double; Leads League in Wins & Goaltender Points
/ Nashville Predators
Preds goaltender Pekka Rinne pulled a rare double-double this season, leading all NHL goaltenders in both Wins and Goaltender Points. Rinne's 43 wins were one better than Pittsburgh's Marc-Andre Fleury, while his five points (all assists) were one more than New Jersey's Martin Brodeur and Ottawa's Craig Anderson.
Rinne joins Brodeur as the only goaltenders since 1993-94 to lead the league in both categories in the same season. In 2005-06, Brodeur led the league with 43 wins and tied for the league lead with three points. In 1999-2000, Brodeur led the league outright in both categories with 43 win and five points.
