In a season where Tuukka Rask combined with Jaroslav Halak to win the Jennings Trophy, the Bruins goalie might need to clear out more space in his personal trophy case.
Rask was unsurpisingly named a finalist for the Vezina Trophy as the NHL's top goaltender on Friday morning, along with Winnipeg's Connor Hellebuyck and Tampa Bay's Andrei Vasilevskiy.

Once the season went on pause, it was a fait accompli that Rask would be in the running for the Vezina. He led all goaltenders with a 2.12 goals against average, ranked second with a .929 save percentage, and was tied for second in the league with five shutouts.
The only stat where Rask falls behind his competition is wins, as his 26 victories rank seventh in the league — but even that's impressive considering he's tied for 18th in the league in games played (41).
Here's how Rask compares to his competition for the Vezina:
Rask — who won his first Vezina Trophy back in 2014 — can join Sergei Bobrovsky as the only active goalies to win the Vezina Trophy twice, and he would tie Tim Thomas as the only Bruins to win multiple Vezinas in the NHL's modern era (since 1981). Other Bruins to win the league's top goaltending honor are Tiny Thompson (4), Frank Brimsek (2), and Pete Peeters (1).
