Lundqvist
With the game scoreless in the second period and the Rangers on the power play, Henrik Lundqvist had to bail his teammates out by doing this...



Here's Lundqvist's teammates (via ESPN NY):

Ryan McDonagh...

"It's unreal. He's so focused and sharp during the game, it makes you want to make sure you're playing at the same level. You don't want to rely on him a lot during the game, but when you see him make stops like that, it just makes you play that much harder."

Brian Boyle...

"I don't think it necessarily has to do with Brodeur. He's a competitive guy and he wants to win. The stage has been set."

Head coach John Tortorella on his goaltender's second period saves...

"It was an important period for Hank. I thought the first period was kind of a feeling-out period. I though Hank gave us a chance to stay in there in the second."

The shutout was Lundqvist's second of the post season.

...a lot of talk about Lundqvist's legacy going into the playoffs this year, rightfully so. And he has answered every critic with his performance up until this point. I'd have to say, even if the Rangers lose the next four straight, that Lundqvist has officially cemented himself as one of the best goaltenders of all time.
