THE WINNER OF THIS YEAR'S VEZINA IS...PEKKA RINNE!



... well, at least according to a poll of Stop Da Puck fans conducted this month.

Here are the top three vote-getters of our exclusive poll results:

* Pekka Rinne: 51 %
* Tim Thomas: 38 %
* Roberto Luongo: 9%

With Thomas and the Bruins stumbling into the stretch, and Rinne consistently playing out of his mind just about every night, the 6'5" Finlander has clearly emerged as a dark-horse/sentimental favorite candidate for the season's award for the NHL's top goalie.

By the numbers, Thomas barely edges Rinne in Save % (.937 to .930) and GAA (2.06 to 2.07), yet Rinne's late-season performance has been downright Predatory.

Who do you think should win the Vezina? Tell us in comments below.

  1. Rinne should win, although it will go to Thomas.
