Power Rankings pres. by YP: Mar. 24

presented by: 

EDITOR'S NOTE: You've arrived at the CBJ Power Rankings, our weekly breakdown of the top-five players, statistics, trends and many other Blue Jackets-related categories. If you're looking for the traditional power rankings, you've come to the wrong place. We'll go in-depth and outside the box, and hopefully give you something to think about.

The Stanley Cup playoff race is reaching a fever pitch and we're going down the stretch, particularly so in the Eastern Conference where four teams (the Blue Jackets included) are in the mix for two Wild Card spots. As with so many of the good teams in the NHL, solid goaltender is often one of the primary ingredients in their recipe. 

In the Metropolitan Division this season, we've seen some outstanding goaltending and the statistics back up the claim. Who are the best starters with at least 30 games played for their team? Let's take a look...

2013-14 SAVE%: .927

When the Hurricanes signed Khudobin to a one-year, $800,000 deal this offseason, there wasn't a lot of fanfare but this has turned out to be one of the best signings of the year. Khudobin has supplanted oft-injured mainstay Cam Ward as Carolina's No. 1 goaltender with a goals-against average (2.28) that ranks 10th-best in the league.
