ROMAN TUREK
BLUES
A Vezina Trophy finalist last year, he was shaky in St. Louis's first-round upset by the Sharks. This season, through Sunday, the 30-year-old was 21-16-8 with a 2.40 GAA and .896 save percentage.

OR

BRENT JOHNSON
BLUES
The rookie went 8-10 in AHL playoff games over the past three seasons and has wrested a share of the No. 1 job in St. Louis. The 24-year-old was 19-8-2 with a 2.10 GAA and .910 save percentage.

The Verdict: Coach Joel Quenneville is still undecided about who will start in the postseason, but we would go with Johnson.
