1. Semyon Varlamov - Colorado Avalanche: 63 games played, 41 wins
Varlamov had a career high of 26 wins before being asked to carry the load for the Colorado Avalanche this season. He played through some swirling legal issues early in the season and came back from a disappointing Olympics by playing better than ever for the Avs.
Varlamov's strong play last in the season helped Colorado climb all the way to the Central Division title and sets the stage for them to enter their first postseason in four years brimming with confidence.
2. Marc-Andre Fleury - Pittsburgh Penguins: 64 games played, 39 wins
The Pittsburgh Penguins posted another solid regular season, despite dealing with serious injury issues all year long. Marc-Andre Fleury finished the year with numbers that are almost identical to his three previous regular seasons, including an impressive winning percentage. Fleury had Stanley Cup success in 2009, but has faltered in subsequent seasons. Now, his real test begins.
3. Antti Niemi - San Jose Sharks: 64 games played, 39 wins
A Stanley Cup winner himself with Chicago in 2010, Antti Niemi walks a similar road to Fleury. Stellar during the early part of the season, consistency has been an issue for the 30-year-old Finn in recent months. His 39 wins mark a new career high.
