Henrik Lundqvist Post-Game Video Interviews + Notes


Henrik Lundqvist stopped all 34 shots he faced to earn his first win and first shutout of the 2017-18 season. Lundqvist appeared in his 745th career NHL game in tonight's contest, passing Chris Osgood for sole possession of 20th place on the NHL's all-time appearances list. Lundqvist is one of nine goalies who rank 20th or higher on the NHL's all-time appearances list, the NHL's all-time wins list, and the NHL's all-time shutouts list (along with Martin Brodeur, Patrick Roy, Terry Sawchuk, Jacques Plante, Glenn Hall, Tony Esposito, Ed Belfour, and Roberto Luongo). He earned his 406th career NHL win in tonight's contest, and he is now one win away from tying Hall for ninth place on the league's all-time wins list. Lundqvist also earned his 62nd career NHL shutout in tonight's game, passing Turk Broda for sole possession of 16th place on the league's all-time shutouts list. Lundqvist became the second goaltender in franchise history to earn at least one win in 13 different seasons (Mike Richter - 14). Lundqvist has started both games of a back-to-back set 79 times in his NHL career; he has posted a 51-21-7 record, along with a 2.02 GAA, a .930 SV%, and 9 SO in the second game of those back-to-back sets. In addition, Lundqvist has appeared in 171 games in which he and another winner of the Vezina Trophy have both started. In those 171 games, Lundqvist has posted a 100-55-16 record, along with a 2.23 GAA, a .921 SV%, and 16 SO. Lundqvist made his NHL debut 12 years ago today (Oct. 8, 2005 at New Jersey).
