New York Rangers
Despite getting outshot handedly and giving up the lead two separate times, the Bruins got stronger as the game went on and won 5-2 to take a 2-0 series lead to New York. Tuukka Rask had 35 saves, some sparkling and clutch ones, and all three of the rookie defensemen had points in the victory. Henrik Lundqvist let in five goals for the first time in two years and Rick Nash recorded his first goal of the playoffs in the loss.
The Bruins started just like Game 1 ended, with end-to-end dominance and getting a bevy of good scoring chances while the Rangers struggled to keep possession. Henrik Lundqvist seemed to be fighting the puck early, yielding uncharacteristic rebounds and losing the pucks after those rebounds.
The Bruins would jump on the board early when Torey Krug scored his second goal in two games at the back end of a 4-on-2. The three forwards raced towards the net, creating separation for Krug to pick up the trailing pass, corral it, and throw a wrist shot that ended up ...

AROUND THE WEB
On the postgame show last night, it was mentioned that Henrik Lundqvist would have his shoulder looked at today to ensure everything is ok. Hank took a Danielle Paille shot off his shoulder late in yesterday’s 5-2 loss, and remained down on the ice for a short period of time. Hank stayed in the game, and trainer Jim Ramsay never left the bench. Marty Biron didn’t even put on...
BOSTON — New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist goes by the nickname “King Henrik,” and he even has a neat hat with a crown and his No. 30 on it that he often wears.
Lundqvist was wearing that ballcap as he turned to face the media following his showing in the Rangers’ 5-2 loss to the Bruins in Game 2 of their second-round playoff series. Of course, after allowing a season...
Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist had just given up five goals to the Bruins in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference semifinals series, as he quietly removed his goalie equipment in the New York dressing room.
The goalie gingerly slid his Rangers jacket on, with a painful grimace on his face as he did so before answering questions from the media. As he answered the questions, he grabbed...
“Defense wins championships.”
We’ve heard that mantra so many times that it has almost lost its meaning. Still, the Bruins may have found a way to redefine the saying if their defensemen keep playing so well — on the offensive end of things.
Goals from Torey Krug and Johnny Boychuk paced the B’s to a 5-2 victory over the Rangers, grabbing a big 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference...
Dan Rosen at NHL.com reports that Henrik Lundqvist said he experienced some discomfort in his left shoulder after making a save on Daniel Paille with 4:52 remaining in the third period during yesterday's 5-2 loss to the Bruins in Game 2.
"It's my shoulder, we'll see. We'll take a look at it."
...well that's not exactly what I wanted to hear this...
Joe Haggerty at CSN NE reports that Bruin David Krejci was surprised with the goals scored against Henrik Lundqvist in Game 1...
“But I was kind of surprised with Zee’s shot, and even Krug’s shot, that they got through without much traffic. I hit a post and Johnny [Boychuk] hit a couple as well, so we could have had even more.
“That’s a good thing that we know...
from Pat Pickens of Slap Shot,
At the start of the Rangers’ series with the Boston Bruins in the N.H.L. Eastern Conference semifinals, most fans and pundits gave New York a sizable advantage in goaltending.
It is no secret that Henrik Lundqvist is one of the league’s best goalies. He is the defending Vezina Trophy winner and was nominated for the award again this year...
from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
It is difficult enough for the Rangers to win even when Henrik Lundqvist is at the top of his game. It is all but impossible for the Blueshirts to even come close when The King plays as if he’s a plebeian.
Which goes a long way in explaining yesterday, when it appeared as if the Bruins were shooting pucks made out of Kryptonite rather...

8 a.m. ET: The Bruins have looked very impressive through two games of their Eastern Conference second-round series with the New York Rangers, and the B’s are now in position to really make this series a laugher.
The Bruins and Rangers will meet Tuesday night for Game 3 of the conference semifinals, where Boston will have a chance to go up 3-0 in the best-of-seven series. Boston...
In 31 games against the Bruins, Henrik Lundqvist had not allowed more than three goals. In Game 2 at the biggest time of the year, he let in five. What a difference a playoff series makes. With veteran D men Dennis Seidenberg, Andrew Ference and Wade Redden still out, the Baby B's defense made another strong case for why they should stay on the job when those guys get back...
The Boston Bruins won game two fairly convincingly
The past few weeks over here for me have been a blur. With my final finals period at university and graduation and starting a new job, not even the crazy first round series for the Boston Bruins could help me find time to write blog posts. As a result, Boston’s Bettah has been a place where posts have been infrequent and not exactly...
Today the Rangers look to avoid going back to MSG down 2-0. In game 1 the Blueshirts stayed with the Bruins until OT where they were out-shot 16-5, half of which was on that one power play. Although it wasn’t a great game by any means, I thought the Bruins looked very beatable. Sure they have depth and an ability to roll four lines, but at no point did I feel like any of their...
Boston Bruins rookie defenseman #47 Torey Krug celebrates his 2nd goal in as many games
If you had told me before the game that the Bruins were going to score 5 goals on Henrik Lundqvist, I’d of told you you were crazy. The B’s came out on fire in game 2, and their effort was rewarded roughly five minutes in. Torey Krug continued his impressive play from game 1 into game 2, and...
The biggest news from practice today was that Henrik Lundqvist (shoulder) participated in full and said this about his status for Game 3 (via Bergen Record)...
