NHL Goaltender Rankings Oct 25

Mandatory Credit: Kim Klement-USA TODAY SportsA lot has changed in the NHL goaltending landscape the past couple weeks. Backup goalies such as J-S Giguere, Josh Harding, Carter Hutton, Anton Khudobin, and Jonas Gustavsson stepped it up when it was there chance to shine. They all made the list, including Harding, who jumped 21 spots. Tuukka Rask, Antti Niemi, Sergei Varlamov, and Marc-Andre Fleury still sit on top of the mountain, and are silencing their critics by keeping their astonishing numbers in tact. Henrik Lundqvist continues to struggle, however, while Jonathan Quick jumped 5 spots. Here is my October 25 NHL Goaltender Rankings, with their October 10 ranking in brackets.
