Fourth time's the charm: NY Rangers G Henrik Lundqvist finally wins his 1st Vezina Trophy

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers has won his first Vezina Trophy as the NHL's top goalie.

Lundqvist won the award Wednesday night at the NHL's annual post-season awards show at the Wynn Las Vegas casino.

The Rangers' tireless Swedish netminder won the award on his fourth nomination, going 39-18-5 with five shutouts and a 1.97 goals-against average while leading the Rangers to the Eastern Conference's best regular-season record.

Lundqvist beat out Nashville's Pekka Rinne and Los Angeles' Jonathan Quick.

Quick won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the NHL's playoff MVP last week after backstopping the Kings to their first Stanley Cup title, posting some of the best post-season statistics in league history.
