From Ken Baker at NHL.com: Lundqvist, who is 30 and entering the Stanley Cup Playoffs after his most statistically remarkable regular season (1.97 goals-against average .930 save percentage), says, “I’d like to play another ten years, maybe more. But, with injuries, you never know. That’s why you just have to enjoy the moment.” The latest moment for the Swede to soak in will come Thursday in the opening game of New York’s first-round series against the No. 8 seeded Ottawa Senators. Lundqvist’s moment-savoring approach to his sport was on full display Monday as he prepares for the matchup. In an hour-long, fast-paced practice in which head coach John Tortorella barks throughout—and goalie coach Benoit Allaire dissects his star pupil—the All-Star goalie does what all elite athletes do: make the difficult look easy.
