Meanwhile, while some players were trying to look at the positive of gaining at least one point out of the game (which, to me, at least, sounds ridiculous given the Rangers were up 1 with under four minutes to play and had taken a 2-0 lead after one period), goalie Henrik Lundqvist made the strongest case for not being happy with the one point. Understand, Henrik Lundqvist is not a curser. I’ve never heard him curse during a television interview. In fact, as I think back, I can’t recall him cursing in the relaxed setting of the dressing room after practices. And, trust me, there’s a lot of cursing going on at times.
But asked about Tomas Kaberle’s tying goal at 16:25 of the third period, Lundqvist said, “I let in a [bleeping] terrible goal. “I’m [bleeping] [ticked].”
Lundqvist said the problem was he mistimed his kick on the sharp angle shot. As to Nikolai Kulemin’s winner 39 seconds into overtime, here was John Tortorella’s explanation.
