.940 - Ilya Samsonov’s save percentage since December 1, the best save percentage in the League over that span. In his seven starts, Samsonov has gone 7-0-0 — including his first career shutout over the Hurricanes Monday night — and given up just 12 goals on 201 shots.

At even strength, that number jumps up to an equally impressive .955 (also tops in the League), with just seven goals given up on 157 shots faced five-on-five.
