Sharks Hart candidate

Early candidate for the Hart Trophy that many people are not even considering: Evgeni Nabokov.

Now, before every Canuck and Penguin fan explodes let me explain myself. The San Jose Sharks currently are the fifth-lowest scoring team in the NHL; they have the second-lowest goals against. They are tied for first in their division and second in the conference, with Dallas having played two more games.

No other team scores that few of goals, while being that high in the standings and that is because of one man.

Nabokov has a .919 save percentage, 2.00 goals-against average, with 16 wins, but most impressively has started 29 consecutive games.
