Henrik Lundqvist turned aside all 36 shots faced to post his league-leading, third shutout of the playoffs, and second shutout in the series. He improved to 25-27 overall in the playoffs, including an 11-15 mark on the road. Lundqvist became the first Rangers goaltender to post multiple shutouts in a single playoff series since Mike Richter registered two shutouts against New Jersey in their 1997 Conference Semifinals series. The shutout was the sixth of his career, moving him past Ed Giacomin and John Ross Roach into third on the Rangers’ all-time list, and he is now tied for third on the Rangers’ single season shutouts list.
Lundqvist has now recorded 30+ saves in 15 career playoff contests, posting a record of 8-7 with a 1.60 goals against average, .951 save percentage and three shutouts.
