* Henrik Lundqvist entered the contest at 12:30 of the second period, and stopped nine of 11 shots to improve to 10-9-1 overall with an 8-4-0 record on the road. Tonight was Lundqvist’s sixth career relief appearance, and first since Oct. 19, 2009 vs. San Jose. It was his second career win in a relief appearance, having posted a 5-4 shootout win vs. Buffalo on Mar. 27, 2006, entering the contest at the start of the third period and stopping all eight shots faced through 25 minutes and three-of-three in the shootout.
From The Blueshirts Blog:
“The game just changed so many times during the 60 minutes,” said Lundqvist, the winning goalie after making nine saves on 11 shots. “We started off well, then they take over, then something happens. Just so many things happened to change the momentum. It was a weird (game) to play. The last two games we’ve played here have just been pinball games in front of the net. I don’t know why. It just happens. The thing you have to do is just battle and try to get the bounces.”
