Henrik Lundqvist Post-Game Notes & Reaction


-Henrik Lundqvist made 27 saves to post his fourth shutout of the season, the 39th of his career, and record his 20th win of the season. Lundqvist is the third goaltender in Rangers’ history to reach the 20-win mark in seven consecutive years, and the first since Mike Richter accomplished the feat from 1995-96 to 2001-02. Ed Giacomin holds the franchise record with eight straight seasons of 20 or more wins (1966-67 to 1973-74). Miikka Kiprusoff (Calgary)
is the only other goalie in the league with an active streak of 20+ wins in seven or more consecutive seasons (courtesy of the Elias Sports Bureau).

- Lundqvist improved to 20-9-4 overall, including a 10-4-2 mark at home. He has allowed one goal or less in eight of his last 13 games, and has held opponents to two or fewer goals in 22 games this season.

        Henrik Lundqvist on the team…
“I think we’re more mature.  We know how we have to play.  So far every time we lose our focus on how we have to play, we correct it pretty quickly.  That’s key if you want to stay in top position, you have to correct things right away.  You can’t let it slide, and it’s a really good thing to have.  I like the way guys prepare, and after a tough game we really want to come back with a strong performance.  I like to see the way guys look at themselves and how they play, and try to improve and get better.”
