NHL betting: Rask leads Conn Smythe odds
Despite giving up six goals in a high-scoring affair in Game 4, Boston Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask has played exceptionally well for the duration of the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs and leads the way in Conn Smythe odds.
The Bruins netminder, currently +125 to win playoff MVP honors, takes a 1.83 GAA and .941 save percentage into Game 5 Saturday.
Here is a look at the Conn Smythe odds courtesy of CarbonSports:
* Goalies have won back-to-back Conn Smythe trophies with Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick winning last year and Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins winning the year before.
* Bruins forward David Krejci leads the playoffs in scoring with 24 points.
* Patrick Sharp of the Blackhawks leads the way in playoff goals with 10.
* In 2003, Jean-Sebastien Giguere of the Anaheim Ducks was the last player to win the award while playing for the losing team in the Stanley Cup Final.
