Henrik Lundqvist and Tuukka Rask are widely regarded as two of the best goalies in the NHL. Lundqvist is making his case as the best here in Game 3, however. He’s made 23 saves through the first two periods of the Bruins-Rangers clash and is looking poised to steal this game for the Blueshirts. Of course, the B’s still have 20 minutes to see if there’s anything they can do to change that. NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette has more in the above video.

Henrik Lundqvist Says Bruins Have ‘Got Some Lucky Bounces,’ Blames Game 3 Loss on Bounces

Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist may be one of the best goalies in the world, but he’s also really good at finding a way to place the blame elsewhere when things don’t go very well. He was doing just that only a few hours before his team looks to avoid being swept out of the playoffs in Game 4 of their second-round series with the Bruins. This time, it’s the bounces’ fault...

Henrik Lundqvist Admits to Having Sore Left Shoulder, Says ‘Everybody Is Sore’ in Playoffs

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...

Rangers goalie Lundqvist says Bruins are getting "lucky"

 (credit: Bruce Bennett/Getty Images) NEW YORK-- With the New York Rangers down in an 0-3 hole, nothing seems to be going right for them.  They are frustrated, and the man between the pipes Henrik Lundqvist thinks that maybe luck is not on his team’s side.  Joe McDonald of reported that the goaltender states the Boston Bruins have gotten “lucky” on multiple...

There’s Lundqvist Then Everyone Else

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, It was hardly earth-shattering stuff, nothing like saying a player “stinks” on the power play, for instance, but John Tortorella sure had it right before the playoffs started when the Rangers’ coach talked about legacies being made in the postseason and not in the regular-season. Ten games into the playoffs following last night’s...

Lundqvist to Get Shoulder Looked At

Dan Rosen at 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...

Not The Time For A Slumping ‘King’

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...

The Other Goalie Has Been Better

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...

Bruins battle back with two third period goals to beat Rangers 2-1; lead 3-0

Despite a terrific effort from Henrik Lundqvist the Bruins were able to come back with third period goals to beat the Rangers 2-1 and to take a 3-0 series lead.  Daniel Paille got the game-winning goal and Johnny Boychuk scored his fourth playoff goal as the Bruins fourth line was the difference in a very tight game.  Henrik Lundqvist made 32 saves, many of them sparkling early...

Tuukka Rask slips, falls, allows terrible goal

We've all heard that expression "boy, he'd like to have that one back." I'm pretty sure that applies to Tuukka Rask here. In Thursday night's game, with the Bruins up 2-0, Rask moves to his left, slips somehow, and allows a Carl Haglin barely-there shot to roll on by:     There's so much to love/hate about this goal, depending on what team...

Boston Bruins Goalie Tuukka Rask Drops F Bomb On Reporter

A.B. According to Toucher & Rich and descriptions/comments on numerous websites – the unnamed reporter from 98.5 The Sports Hub angered Bruins goalie, Tuukka Rask, by touching (and possibly knocking over) his iPad. For me, the story isn’t the swearing on live television. For me, the stare down is the story. If Tuukka had punched the reporter in the face I wouldn’t have...

Tuukka Rask’s Tumble Opens Window for Rangers Comeback, But Bruins Have Ability to Slam It Shut (Video)

The Rangers scored one of the strangest goals you’ll ever see in the second period of Thursday’s Game 4 against the Bruins, and it energized the team. Luckily, the Bruins had an “energy” line waiting to help neutralize the threat. Now, as the Blueshirts head into the third period of what could be their last game of the year, Tuukka Rask and the B’s have a lead — but the...

Video- Bad Goal Of The Night Candidate

Tuukka Rask can't handle the 'changeup' from Carl Hagelin.  

Vote: Who Has Been the Bruins’ MVP Thus Far in the Playoffs?

There is still a lot of playoff hockey to play (any Bruins fan will assure you that the team’s second-round series with the Rangers is not close to being over), but it’s not too early to take a look at who some of Boston’s top performers have been so far. The short list obviously has to include goalie Tuukka Rask, who leads all netminders with seven wins in the postseason and...
