AROUND THE WEB
On the postgame show last night, it was mentioned that Henrik Lundqvist would have his shoulder looked at today to ensure everything is ok. Hank took a Danielle Paille shot off his shoulder late in yesterday’s 5-2 loss, and remained down on the ice for a short period of time. Hank stayed in the game, and trainer Jim Ramsay never left the bench. Marty Biron didn’t even put on...
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...
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...
LIKE A CANNON
Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara is known for having the hardest slapshot in the entire NHL, but that didn’t stop New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist from stopping the shot with his head. Lundqvist knows the Rangers are in a must-win game four and has shown that he is willing to do whatever it takes, even if it means finishing the game with a different mask than the...
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...
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...
(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 ESPNBoston.com reported that the goaltender states the Boston Bruins have gotten “lucky” on multiple...
Dan Rosen at NHL.com 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...
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...
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...
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...
During the Game Three loss, the NBCSN announcers noted that Anton Stralman did not return to the game after a vicious (and clean) hit by Milan Lucic in the first period. Stralman was noted to possibly have a concussion.
The biggest news from practice today was that Henrik Lundqvist (shoulder) participated in full and said this about his status for Game 3 (via Bergen Record)...
“I landed on the ice awkwardly and hurt it a little bit. It’s under control. Everybody’s sore. It’s the playoffs. You can’t sit out (because) it’s hurting a little bit. it happens and you just have to make...
Anton Stralman did not participate in the Rangers optional practice a day after being forced to leave Game 3 due to a crushing hit he received along the boards from Milan Lucic.
Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record adds that it's not likely that he'll play in Game 4 and that Matt Gilroy or Roman Hamrlik are the likely replacements. No word if Marc Staal, who skated again...
