Henrik Lundqvist fights Max Pacioretty!

Saturday, January 15, 2011

Tonight I missed the game because NHL Gamecenter Live blacked out the game. And therefore I missed a rare unicorn, something I thought I'd never see: Henrik Lundqvist went bat shit crazy and gave a viking smackdown to an opposing player.

Thanks to reader Sarah for the video and heads up.

Blueshirt Banter: Lundqvist blew his cork late in the second when Max Pacioretty drove into him and knocked him down. Lundqvist jumped Pacioretty and pounded on him like Ralphie pounded on Scott Farcus in "A Christmas Story".

5 Hole: Pacioretty got two minutes for goaltender interference, Gionta and Dubinsky each got two for roughing and Lundqvist went unpenalized.


King Henrik Denies the Canucks with a Shutout!

Thursday, January 13, 2011

King Henrik was a stunning beast in this game. If you don't have MSG or NHL Gamecenter Live online, get it and watch this game. Watch it again. It's that damn amazing.

King Henrik had the crowd chanting his name. There was a standing ovation and cheering when they cleared a power play with skill. There were horrible attacks on NY Rangers completely and utterly missed by the refs. It was a hard fought game and the Rangers played like Stanley Cup winners. Henrik was 1st star of the game and threw an autographed stick into the seats for about 20 people to fight to the death over it.

What an amazing game. Oh yeah, Henrik had his 30th career shutout.

Henrik Lundqvist on his 30th shutout… “30 is a good number. Hopefully I can keep it going a little bit longer. Every shutout is important. This was a good win to come back. It is so important to respond with two points. This helps us in the standings.”

From Nick:
Lundqvist made 31 saves against the league’s top offense to secure his sixth shutout of the season tonight. That is itself is a remarkable accomplishment, but when you take into consideration the quality saves that he made, his performance seems even more impressive. The Canucks were struggling to get shots through to the net, so by the third period they were throwing the puck on from all angles. This forced Hank to be quick down low and make a lot of those sneaky kick saves. Very difficult for him to pull off, but a joy for us fans to watch. I said in the pregame that King Henrik would have to play out of his mind for the Rangers to win this game. I think it’s safe to say he did just that.

Henrik Lundqvist stopped all 31 shots he faced to record his sixth shutout of the season and 30th of his career, and is now 19-13-3 overall with a 7-7-2 mark at home. He has registered a 12-5-2 record with a 1.70 goals against average, a .938 save percentage and four shutouts in his last 19 games. Lundqvist moved into a tie with John Ross Roach for third on the Rangers all-time regular season shutouts list (30), and is tied with Mike Richter for fourth on the Rangers all-time shutouts list (regular season and playoffs combined) with 33 career shutouts.

Henrik Lundqvist is a Vezina Trophy Contender

Monday, January 10, 2011

henrik lundqvist vezina trophyAccording to The Hockey News blog, our guy Henrik is the #3 pick for the Vezina Trophy.

Henrik Lundqvist - Rangers are middle-of-the-pack in shots against and have endured a number of injuries to key defensive players this season. The reason why? The NHL’s shutout leader (tied with Thomas and Vokoun), of course.
Henrik is behind Tim Thomas and Carey Price. I think Henrik will move on up as the season continues.

In other news, with the trade today of Rozsival, Henrik is the lone NY Ranger still around after the lockout.

In other, other news, the NY Rangers play the Habs tomorrow and Henrik looks to be in the net against Alex Auld the backup goalie for the NY Rangers last season.

This photo has nothing to do with the Vezina trophy. I just like how Henrik looks all scruffy in his Tre Kronor hat.

Henrik walking to the locker room tonight.

Henrik is such a beast that he is leading the NHL in assists! For goalies that is. Yes, Henrik has 3 goal assist for the season and he's a goalie! Hank can do anything.

Lundqvist is 11-4-2 with a 1.78 goals-against average, .934 save percentage and three shutouts in his last 17 games for the Rangers. He also has assists in consecutive games.

Henrik has the night off tonight against the Blues.


Lundqvist Wins Shootout Against Dallas

Friday, January 7, 2011

henrik lundqvist zucarrello
Henrik was great in the game and terrific in the shootout. MZA made another game winning goal this game with the only goal made in the shootout. No explosions with Avery and the Stars so I was a little disappointed. But it was really good game and nothing makes my day better than continually hearing "SAVE BY LUNDQVIST!".


Henrik Lundqvist's Sunday Routine

henrik lundqvist sunday

This is the most personal interview with Henrik I've ever read. We learn a lot about his personal home life in this one. I bet he was sight walking the dog in a tux at night! I am surprised that Nova the dog sleeps in the middle of the bed between Henrik and Therese.

To be Henrik Lundqvist is to suit up. When the Swedish-born goaltender of the New York Rangers isn’t sporting Blueshirt No. 30, he may wear a dapper three-piece number. On Sundays, though, Mr. Lundqvist, 28 — who won a gold medal in the 2006 Winter Olympics blocking pucks for Sweden’s national hockey team — dresses down, relaxing at the movies or playing his guitar. He lives with his fiancée, Therese Andersson, 28, and their 4-year-old Doberman, Nova, in a two-bedroom duplex in the West 50s with a terrace and a hot tub. ELISA MALA

More Articles in This Series
HIT SNOOZE BUTTON I try to sleep in, get up around 9:30 or 10. Relax. Maybe go for a run.

WITH THE DOBERMAN? Usually, Therese does that. I always get the night shift — that was the deal when we got the dog.

BRUNCH OF CHAMPIONS A goat cheese omelet. I love goat cheese.

FASHION FREE I don’t really have a Sunday look. I take whatever I find: a collared shirt, jeans and a jacket. If it’s a day off, it’s definitely not a suit.

CATCH A MOVIE I like to go to the movie theater — Lincoln Center, the big one with the Imax. It’s more about the actors: a lot of times they are the difference between whether it’s going to be a good or a bad movie. Robert De Niro, Denzel Washington and Christian Bale are my top three. It could be anything: comedy, action, thriller. Usually, it’s in the afternoon, when it’s quiet and there aren’t too many people.

DOUBLE FEATURE Now that we’ve renovated the place, it’s pretty good to sit at home and watch movies. The last movie I saw was “The Godfather.” I never really watched them growing up, so when we flew back from Sweden last summer, we bought all three. I still haven’t seen the last one.

MUSICAL MOMENTS I play the electric guitar. At home, I play more acoustic. I started when I was 9. I played for two years, and then kind of stopped. My twin brother played the bass, and my older sister played the drums, so we played at home a lot: a family band for a few years.

DINNER IN HELL’S KITCHEN There are a lot of good restaurants along Ninth Avenue. I wouldn’t say that I have a favorite place, but Bocca di Bacco is great. I just love Italian food, all kinds of pasta. I order it a lot when I’m in restaurants, but I also eat it four times a week when I’m playing games. At Maria Pia, a place on 51st between Eighth and Ninth Avenues, they have really good goat cheese ravioli.

DO YOU GET RECOGNIZED? It’s a comfortable level. You can live your life and be relaxed — that’s what I love about New York. Being in Sweden, you feel like you’re being watched.

TIVO TIME Therese always TiVos everything. I like to watch “Dexter.” And “House.” It’s just funny; he’s so bitter. I like him as an actor.

WALK THE DOG I always do it right before I go to bed, which is around 10:30 or 11 o’clock. A lot of times I’m so tired that I just want to go to sleep, but that’s my shift — I just have to suck it up. Once, I came home from a benefit and walked her while wearing a tux.

SLUMBER PARTY She thinks she’s a small dog, like she weighs five pounds. But she weighs, I don’t know, 75 pounds. She can’t sleep on the floor; she always has to sleep on the bed. A lot of times you wake up and you have a 75-pound Doberman on top of you. Sometimes you wake up and your back is pretty sore. Facing the bed, I sleep on the left side. Nova is in the middle.

Wednesday, January 5, 2011

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Millions, billions of females across the globe are now in mourning. Thousands of black armbands will be worn on the NY Rangers #30 jersey. Henrik is indeed engaged and getting married to longtime paramour Therese. :(

The news is all over Sweden and thanks to reader Josefine those of us on this continent now know and can commence the gnashing of teeth and wailing.

Swedish goalie Henrik Lundqvist hero, 28, will marry.
He surprised his girlfriend, Theresa Andersson with a huge diamond ring and a surprise party.
"It was a fantastic evening in every way," says hockey star.

Since two weeks back, the New York Rangers goalie Swedish star Henrik Lundqvist engaged.
According to Expressen's data, he planned everything with the utmost secrecy - to surprise his girlfriend Theresa.
And he succeeded. They've been together a long time but she suspected nothing yet, says a friend.
Henry is thought to have a phone call to Theresa and asked her to put on a dress. He then sent a taxi that drove her to a small, romantic restaurant in New York which he subscribed.
"She said yes immediately"

It was evening, four days before Christmas.
"There were flowers planted everywhere and only the two where the whole restaurant," says Expressen's source.
The ring that hockey star, gave to his girlfriend is, reportedly, a really big diamond ring.
-It is of white gold and completely covered with small diamonds and a giant diamond in the center, says the couple's friend, adding:
-She said yes immediately when he proposed. She was very happy.
Suspect no evening did not stop there - but offered even more surprises for the now future wife Lundqvist.
Flew in friends
Her hockey hero had really made an effort and secretly invited her closest friends - and flew them to New York.
-Therese had not suspected anything in advance, "says the friend.
Henrik Lundqvist, who has previously been identified as the Princess Madeleine's new love, has now clearly shown that his heart belongs to the youth love Theresa.
When Expressen congratulate him on the engagement, he replies:
-Thank you. It was a fantastic night at all seen.

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

Motherpucker is having another hottest man in NHL contest this year. The last contest was in 2009 and guess who walked away as the Hottest NHL Player? KING HENRIK!

It's two years later and he's running another contest. Post a comment on his post and mention who you think the hottest players are. Then he'll make up the polls and the real voting will start. From what I can see, we need more mentions of Henrik in the comments so that he makes the polls. Go over and comment that he's the hottest! I think Jose Theodore comes in 2nd. He takes good pics for sure.

Rumor: Henrik Lundqvist Engaged!

henrik lundqvist engagedEDITED It's true! Read the full story here.

It is time to mourn the loss of this hot bitch on the hot Swedish hockey player market of available bachelors.

According to someone that knows someone that attended their engagement party in early December, Henrik and Therese are finally engaged. She has a 6 carat diamond. No word on color, cut, clarity of diamond or even the number. I'd like to see a photo of the ring and the name of the store he got it from.

Henrik and Therese have been shacking up, living in sin, etc since he first moved to New York over 5 years ago.

Of course, this is just rumor. But hey it could be true! And in that case we're all now going to wear black in memory of Henrik as a single bachelor. WAH.


Henrik Lundqvist is Mr. January!

Sadly, it's only the NHL Stoppers calendar but still, it's Henrik! Thanks to @CarolVermeer for taking the photo of her calendar!

Now if we could only get the NHL to do a topless Hot Men of Hockey calendar. Henrik for January, Jose Theodore for February and ... just alternate those two for the rest of the year! :)

Henrik Lundqvist Sailing in Sweden


Video from awhile ago when Joel was still with the Dallas Stars. It's amazing how much they look like each other. Henrik has said before in interviews that he loves being on the water. I guess when you live in a country with tons of coastline, you pretty much have to love the water.

Henrik shows up at 24 seconds. That's a quick look at someone with his back turned to the camera and topless but it has to be Joel because there's no tattoo at the top like Henrik has.

Henrik Lost in OT Against Lightning

Saturday, January 1, 2011

henrik lundqvist assSo Henrik lost in OT against the Lightning.
But we still love him. And he looked cool and tan walking in to the arena.

It was only a 2-1 loss but still, it hurts. Biron starts tomorrow against the Lightning so Hank gets a day of rest. Perhaps he partied too hard for New Years Eve. I still can't find out what the Rangers did for NYE other than they were in Tampa. I sure miss Avery and Voros' twitters.

@thenyrangers Lundqvist: "When you tie a game that late, you have to be happy with the point...we worked hard and played well"

Best tweet about the game:
@easier2run007 The Lightning should have had a penalty for just getting in a way of Lundqvist's awesomeness

Henrik Lundqvist's Tiny's Restaurant Tour

Here's a tour of Henrik's unfinished restaurant Tiny's. The tour was given to a Swedish TV station (do they fly over just to hang out and interview Henrik?). You even get to see Henrik pull up and leave in his murdered out Lambo! And he gets a ticket on the Lambo halfway through. LOL

Translated Henrik quotes

It’s gonna be fun. It’s gonna be a local restaurant/bar—nothing special—with good food and good atmosphere. I think the the favorite room is gonna be in the back with an open stove. The menu is not gonna have anything complicated. The hamburger has to taste good, since I’m a hamburger person! There’s gonna be meatballs and soups. I don’t spend too much time on this, just about one day a week. It’s just for fun with a couple of friends. It’s not like I’m gonna make money on it. It’s too much of a risky business.

Sean Avery is one of the friends that's gone in on the restaurant with Henrik.


New Henrik Lundqvist Wallpaper for 2011

henrik lundqvist wallpaper
The New York Rangers website is giving it's Hank loving fans some sweet wallpaper for 2011!

I don't really like the first wallpaper. Henrik's look is well, just not doing it for me. He looks like he's confused and frankly it's not a look I want my killer goalie to have.
henrik lundqvist wallpaper
Now THIS is wallpaper! Henrik looks like a gladiator in this one. Fierce visage. It looks like he's thinking of ways to take a stick to Brodeur or Crosby.
