Rangers' Lundqvist would keep NHL in the Olympics


The Olympics ended in disappointment for Henrik Lundqvist, but the Rangers goalie would like to go back.

"I think it's a great stage. I think it's great for hockey, so I definitely think we should be there," Lundqvist said today of the debate whether NHL players will return for the 2014 Games.

"I don't really understand how you can see it as a bad thing. You see how much exposure the game of hockey gets ... it's ridiculous to think that we're better off not to be there."

Lundqvist's Sweden team did not medal after being eliminated in the quarterfinals. Olli Jokinen won bronze for Finland, and Chris Drury and Ryan Callahan took the silver medal after USA's 3-2 overtime loss to Canada.
