Tuukka Rask made 24 saves in a 4-1 win over Buffalo on Saturday afternoon.
Rask should garner plenty of Vezina Trophy consideration after posting a 36-15-6 record to go with a .930 save percentage and a 2.04 goals-against average. He also leads the league with seven shutouts heading into Saturday night's action. It's probably a safe bet that Chad Johnson will start Sunday's regular season finale against New Jersey to give Rask a rest before the playoffs. Apr 12 - 4:21 PM
