Henrik's 2nd Shutout of the Season

Yes Henrik had another amazing night and had his second shutout of the season. He made 33 saves. Looks like the kinks in his neck are all worked out. I didn't manage to get to this game either so apparently it looks like my watching or not watching have nothing to do with the NY Rangers winning the game. That's good to know. It would be scary to have that much power.

According to Puck Daddy our guy Hank was one of the three stars of Friday in the NHL.
No. 3 Star: Henrik Lundqvist(notes), New York Rangers
Continuing to pile on the New Jersey Devils' miserable season, the Rangers blanked them 3-0 behind 33 saves from Lundqvist. It was the Swede's second shutout of the season and second in his past four starts. Brandon Dubinsky(notes) scored twice as the Rangers moved within three points of first place in the Eastern Conference.

From the NY Rangers NHL site:
“I don’t think it was an easy win, but I felt more controlled out there than I did a couple of times (Thursday) night,” said Lundqvist. “It was important for us to come back with a strong effort after the loss. We did a lot of good things, played with a lot of grit. Beating the Devils is always a good thing.”

“Henrik is Henrik, it’s what’s to be expected,” said Tortorella. “It’s something I’ve always appreciated about him the short time I’ve been with him, he’s a competitor. You don’t have to worry about how he’s going to handle himself. He’s got that in him, and I truly respect that about him.”

In that middle period Lundqvist made, perhaps, his two best saves of the night. At 13:38 he flashed his glove high into the air to deflect Ilya Kovalchuk’s wicked rising snap shot from the left wing, one that seemingly was ticketed to the far upper corner of the net. Then later in the period Lundqvist was in perfect position to stop Jamie Langenbrunner’s deflection from in front.

“He’s just world-class, what can you say?” Brian Boyle said of Lundqvist. “He’s a huge part of our team, obviously, and we start and end with him.”

During the third period rhythmic chants of “Hen-rik! Hen-rik!” filled the Prudential Center from the grateful Rangers fans on hand.

“It felt good,” said Lundqvist. “It was a good win. Starting with me doing my thing, I think everyone is happy with the two big points.”
