Last season, he led the league in goals saved above average, and so far this year, his goals against average is tops in the league at 1.96, with a .931 save percentage to boot. Rinne is incredible at his job, in short, but when he’s facing Vancouver Canucks wonderkid Elias Pettersson on a penalty shot, he might as well be a vending machine worker.
