There should be a couple of Boston Bruins among the finalists for several awards.

Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask is the favorite to win the Vezina Trophy, center Patrice Bergeron is a top candidate to win the Selke Trophy for the second time in his career, and captain Zdeno Chara is expected to be a finalist for the Norris Trophy.

It also wouldn’t be surprising if B’s head coach Claude Julien was nominated for the Jack Adams Award after leading the Original Six franchise to the best record in the league.

Gregory Campbell is Boston’s nominee for the Bill Masterton Trophy.
