Henrik Lundqvist made 25 saves, and stopped all 17 shots he faced over the final two periods, to earn his 16th win of the season. Lundqvist earned his 390th career NHL win in tonight's contest, passing Dominik Hasek to become the all-time leader in wins by a European-born goaltender in NHL history. Lundqvist passed Hasek for sole possession of 12th place on the NHL's all-time wins list. In addition, Lundqvist made his 711th career appearance with the Rangers in tonight's contest, tying Olaf Kolzig for the fourth-most appearances by a goaltender with one franchise in NHL history. The only goaltenders in NHL history who have appeared in more career games with one franchise than Lundqvist has with the Rangers are Martin Brodeur (New Jersey), Tony Esposito (Chicago), and Terry Sawchuk (Detroit).
