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 at his left shoulder a couple of times, leading one to assume that he was dealing with some sort of injury. “It’s my shoulder,” he admitted after the game. “We’ll see. We’ll take a look at it.” After Rangers practice Tuesday, Lundqvist once again discussed the shoulder injury, but he was also quick to admit that the injury wasn’t anything major. “Yeah, it’s under control,” Lundqvist said, according to NorthJersey.com. “I landed on the ice awkwardly and hurt it a little bit. It’s under control. Everybody’s sore. It’s the playoffs. You can’t sit out [because] it’s hurting a little bit. it happens and you just have to make sure you do the right things to keep it good.” The shoulder injury will certainly be something to keep an eye as the series shifts back to New York for Game 3 on Tuesday night. Lundqvist gave up five goals in Game 2, marking the first time he’d been scored on five times since March 9, 2011 against Anaheim.
