Henrik Lundqvist knows all about 30-win seasons.
He already held the NHL record by hitting the mark in each of his first six seasons. With yet another shutout, King Henrik is now a perfect 7 for 7.
Lundqvist had a relatively quiet night, but he had the slimmest of margins to work with. Carl Hagelin scored late in the first period, and Lundqvist stopped all 13 shots the New Jersey Devils fired at him in the New York Rangers' 2-0 victory on Monday.
Lundqvist (30-12-4), who entered with the league's lowest goals-against average in February, dropped it even further as he posted his NHL-best eighth shutout of the season and the 43rd of his career. He made a lunging glove snare with 2:26 left to rob Ilya Kovalchuk and secure the milestone victory.
''It means that things have been going well, but it also means that I played for a club that's given me an opportunity to play a lot,'' Lundqvist said. ''I have a pretty good team in front of me, as well. I'm happy I reached it again.
