Henrik Lundqvist made 23 saves in the contest, and now has a 2-2 record in this year’s playoffs. Lundqvist has also posted a 1.76 GAA and a .927 SV% through the first four games of the series, while allowing two goals or fewer in three of the four contests. The Rangers goaltender started his 70th consecutive playoff game for the Rangers, dating back to Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals on Apr. 26, 2006 vs. New Jersey. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it is the seventh time in league history that a goaltender has started at least 70 consecutive playoff games for one team (Martin Brodeur – New Jersey, Patrick Roy – Montreal and Colorado, Marc-Andre Fleury – Pittsburgh, Ed Belfour – Dallas, Jacques Plante – Montreal). Lundqvist is six games shy of passing Mike Richter for the franchise record in all-time playoff appearances.
