In the realm of goaltending excellence, few can match the sheer brilliance showcased by certain netminders when it comes to consistently maintaining a stellar save percentage.

We're talking about those who have not just had a fleeting moment of brilliance, but rather etched their names into the annals of goaltending history.

When you peek at the stats sheet, it's evident that some goalies have managed to shine particularly bright, boasting a minimum of 41 games played and an impressive .930 SV%.

Standing tall amidst these hockey legends is none other than Dominik Hasek, a name that echoes with awe-inspiring saves and a true mastery of the crease. With an impressive five seasons achieving this elite status, Hasek's dominance is undeniable.

But let's not forget the pride of the Bruins, Tuukka Rask, who has showcased his remarkable skills between the pipes for two standout seasons. Rask's dedication and unwavering performance have undoubtedly contributed to his well-deserved spot on this list.

Sharing the spotlight with Rask are two other phenomenal goalies who've proven their mettle on multiple occasions. Tim Thomas and Tony Esposito, both boasting two seasons of remarkable .930 SV%, have left an indelible mark on the goaltending landscape.

And then, there is the legend whose legacy is forever intertwined with the game: Johnny Bower. His impressive feats of achieving this elite save percentage in two seasons only adds to his storied careers.

When the curtain falls on each season, it's the remarkable performances of these goaltenders that remind us of the sheer skill and dedication required to become a stalwart guardian of the net.

They've etched their names in the record books and in the hearts of hockey enthusiasts, a testament to their remarkable abilities.
