Lundqvist proving doubters wrong

When the playoffs started this year, many blogs and writers in the media were questioning the Rangers and their ability to perform as a top seed. It wasn’t because of their skill or style of play, but it was because Henrik Lundqvist “wasn’t a playoff goalie.” Their claims weren’t that far fetched, as his stats in the playoffs did take a bit of a nosedive in the past few...

Video: Henrik Lundqvist & Brian Boyle Talk About Game Two Loss To Ottawa

… Henrik looks so disappointed, rightfully so. He was very solid but unfortunately the tying goal that went through was out of his hands. Poor defense on that sequence in my book.  The momentum easily shifted towards Ottawa on that tying goal and the Rangers didn’t look right since that point.  Brian Boyle has been [...]

… did Brian Boyle deserve the Broadway Hat? Yes, but I still believe Henrik Lundqvist deserved it more.  Boyle’s goal helped the Rangers win, but Lundqvist’s play in net stole the show and Game Three. Wish they could share it some how!  Boyle has been HUGE for the Rangers over the last few weeks in [...]

Henrik Lundqvist Denies The Senators goals Like He's The US President

  Henrick Lundqvist owned the Ottawa Senators tonight by denying all 39 shots on goal. This is his fourth NHL playoff shutout. Brian Boyle put his 2 cents in by scoring for the 3rd straight game allowing the Rangers to inch past the Senators in game 3 with a 1-0 victory. Of course you need goal(s) to win a game, but I think 99% of the credit should be given to Lundqvist for shutting...

Rangers rob Sens; Recap

The Rangers gutted out a 1-0 victory over the Sens as both teams proved a low scoring game can be absorbing. Above all it was a goalie duel but the Rangers withstood heavy pressure, particularly in the third and rode their goalie and Brian Boyle to a 1-0 win. A great playoff game; let’s get to the game hits. We’re doing things a little differently from here on in. The recaps...

Fantasy Hockey Playoff ONE (4/17)

  Have you ever had the feeling that one goalie changes the game on a nightly basis?  Then you would be quite correct as it seems this year's playoffs always has that one game a night where Goalie A is massively under siege and just flat out steals one.  Last night it was Henrik Lundqvist and his effort led the New York Rangers to a 1-0 win over the Ottawa Senators...

First Period Set Tone for the Game

You could tell from the opening face-off when the tough guys line-up against each other, last night was going to have a different feel from Game 1.
