Pekka Rinne has the Nashville Predators – prior to Friday’s games – in first place in the entire National Hockey League.

His sparkling numbers in goal have given the Predators the confidence to run up and down the ice as they see fit.

Rinne, who picked up the Vezina Trophy as well, received 2 first place votes, 1 third place vote and 1 fourth place vote to win the award for the League MVP.

Best of the Rest: Tyler Seguin – Dallas (2 first place votes) and Shea Weber – Nashville (1 first place vote)
