Ranked 4th amongst the goaltender with at least 10 games played, Jimmy Howard is currently boasting one the best save percentage in the NHL with a surprising .937%.  He also ranks behind the same goaltenders when it comes to Goal Against Average, with a 1.87 GAA. The only netminders ahead of Howard are:

Devan Dubnyk: 23 games started, (14-6-3) .947% save percentage / 1.60 GAA.

Anti Raanta: 11 games started (8-2-0) .941% save percentage / 1.69 GAA.

Carey Price: 21 games started (16-3-2) .940% save percentage / 1.80 GAA.

As the top10 reads out, the only goaltender with a losing record is the Detroit Red Wings masked man. His last win came 3 weeks ago in a shootout 2-1 game against the Buffalo Sabres. Howard could use a little bit of goal support this time around.
