Henrik Lundqvist an Idol to Many

Finally, Henrik Lundqvist (30-26-8, 2.43 goals-against, .919 save percentage) will face Swedish countryman Jonas Gustavsson (15-13-8, 2.86 GAA, .902 save percentage) in nets. Though the “Monster,” at age 25, is just three years younger than Lundqvist, he called Lundqvist his idol, which sort of made Lundqvist blush when he was relayed that comment. Lundqvist said he didn’t meet Gustavsson until last summer at the Swedish Olympic orientation camp. But Gustavsson said Lundqvist’s play in leading Sweden to the 2006 Olympic Gold made him an idol to many.
