Post-Game Notes & Reaction

* Henrik Lundqvist turned aside 25 shots to improve to 29-24-4 overall, including a 12-13-3 mark at home. He is now 4-1-0 with a 2.17 goals against average, a .925 save percentage and one shutout in the last five games.

From Rangers Report:

Henrik Lundqvist:

“They had a pretty good chance coming down the wing there. It was 2-2 and, then you know, the next save or next goal can be critical. They didn’t score there and then we had a couple of chances and we score and go from there. But halfway through the game, it could go either way. They created some big chances, but we stepped up at the right part of the game.”

“Right now, it’s fun. Every game is so important, and mentally I try to see it as the playoffs. I think a lot of guys do, and a lot of teams do. So you have to be so careful that you do the right things in practice and between games and be ready for each game. Because I know from last year, one point could be the difference. You want to do everything you can here to play your best and help the team get points.”

“There’s still a lot of hockey left. I still see it as we’re in a pretty critical spot here. We need to play our best going down the stretch. It can change pretty fast. But the feeling changes so far. You get a couple wins and you feel great and maybe you relax, but the next game will be really important again. So you have to enjoy it, it’s exciting, and hopefully we can keep winning.”

“I think a lot of games now are decided right around the net. You have to be hard in front of your own net, and you have to be in the blue to screen and deflect and get rebounds. That’s how you score now. That will be a critical part of our game.”
