Henrik Lundqvist Snubbed In Vezina Trophy Finalists

The NHL announced the three finalists for the Vezina trophy this afternoon and Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist was not amongst them.  The finalists were Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins, Pekka Rinne of the Nashville Predators and Roberto Luongo of the Vancouver Canucks. 
On the season Lundqvist recorded a 36-27-5 record with a 2.28 goals against average and .923 save percentage.  Lundqvist led the league with 11 shutouts on the season.
Lundqvist and/or Carey Price both would have been more deserving choices than Luongo, but being on the President's Cup winning team was important to the voters.
