TORONTO — Tuukka Rask will not win the Vezina Trophy as the league’s best goalie. It will likely go to Sergei Bobrovsky, one of three finalists announced by the NHL on Wednesday. Antti Niemi and Henrik Lundqvist are the other finalists.
But as his coach noted earlier Wednesday, Rask is hunting a bigger prize. After the 4-3 Game 4 win in overtime, Rask is 13 wins from placing his mitts around the trophy he’d prefer.
