Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist kicked out 36 shots to spark New York to a 3-2 triumph over the visiting Los Angeles Kings Monday night.

Henrik Lundqvist will get the start in Monday's game against the Los Angeles Kings.

Lundqvist is coming off a 21-save performance in a 1-0 OT win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday. After going through a rough stretch, Lundqvist has now rattled off back-to-back wins and he's given up just two goals during that stretch. He owns a 20-12-1 record with a 2.77 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage.

Henrik Lundqvist picked up his second shutout of the season as the Rangers beat the Red Wings 1-0 in overtime on Sunday.

The King was a perfect 21 for 21, including the two shots asked of him while on special teams. He improves to 20-12-1 on the season and is now up to 61 career shutouts.

The Rangers will stay with Henrik Lundqvist against Detroit on Sunday.

The King has actually been much better on the road this season. He's posted a 10-6 record with a .916 save percentage and a 2.40 GAA thus far.

Earning a 5-2 victory over Toronto on Thursday was particularly important to Henrik Lundqvist after his recent struggles.

Lundqvist had allowed 16 goals in the span of seven periods before Thursday's contest. "I think this was a big game for me," Lundqvist said following the Rangers' victory. "Sometimes a win means a little bit more and you enjoy it a little bit extra." We'll see if Lundqvist can build on that, but this has also been a rough season for him overall. He has a 19-12-1 record, 2.86 GAA, and .902 save percentage in 33 contests this season.

Henrik Lundqvist turned aside 23 of 25 shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

It was a nice bounce back performance after he allowed seven goals in Tuesday's loss to the Dallas Stars. The win also snaps his personal three-game losing streak. He has a 19-12-1 record with a 2.86 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage this season. He should be able to improve on those numbers in the second half of the year.

The Rangers will stick with Henrik Lundqvist on Thursday.

Lundqvist has surrendered 16 goals in his last seven periods and has struggled overall this season. That said, backup Antti Raanta is sidelined so this isn't an ideal time for the Rangers to give Lundqvist a breather.
Jan 19 - 3:54 PM

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault feels there's "no doubt that there is a confidence issue with Hank," in regards to Henrik Lundqvist.

Lundqvist has allowed 16 goals in his last seven periods of play alone. That would be bad enough if it was an isolated incident, but he's having a rough season overall with a 2.89 GAA and .902 save percentage in 32 games. "Hank has had some moments in the past, probably never to this degree," Vigneault said. "So he’s in new territory, we’re in new territory to some extent." Lundqvist comes with a $8.5 million annual cap hit through 2020-21 so just based on that alone, the Rangers need him to play like a star goaltender. To make things more complicated in the short-term, backup Antti Raanta is sidelined. That all said, Lundqvist could still turn this season around with a strong second half.

Henrik Lundqvist has stopped just 60 of 76 shots over his last seven periods of play.

Lundqvist allowed a staggering seven goals on Tuesday and wasn't sent out for the third period as a result. "It’s tough," said Lundqvist of his slump. "I feel like it’s embarrassing, frustrating and disappointing at the same time." He's also allowed four or more goals in six of his last eight contests. This is shaping up to be a pretty bad season for the 34-year-old goaltender as he has a 2.89 GAA and .902 save percentage in 32 contests.

Henrik Lundqvist was pulled after allowing seven goals on 27 shots in Tuesday's 7-6 loss to Dallas.

Lundqvist was given the hook at the start of the third period with the Rangers trailing 7-3. Rangers fans at Madison Square Garden were getting on Lundqvist's case tonight, which probably didn't help ease his frustration. Magnus Hellberg entered the game in relief of Lundqvist and stopped all four shots he faced. New York nearly tied the game several times in the third period, but they ultimately came up just short. Lundqvist has an 18-12-1 record with a 2.89 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage. He's dropped three games in a row and he's given up 16 goals during that stretch.

Henrik Lundqvist will get the start in Tuesday's game against Dallas.

Lundqvist is coming off back-to-back losses to the Maple Leafs and Canadiens over the weekend. He gave up nine goals combined in those two outings. Lundqvist has an 18-11-1 record with a 2.72 goals-against-average and a .907 save percentage in 2016-17.

Henrik Lundqvist has really struggled in January.

Lundqvist has a 4.10 GAA and a .861 save percentage in the five games he has played in over the first two weeks of the month. While the defensive play of the Rangers has been suspect, they need Lundqvist to bail them out from time to time.
Jan 16 - 8:24 AM

Henrik Lundqvist replaced Antti Raanta after the first period, but gave up five goals in a 5-4 loss to the Canadiens Saturday night.

Lundqvist was pressed into service when Raanta suffered a lower body injury in the first and while he stepped into the net, he did not step up. This was Lundqvist’s worst performance since he gave up four goals and lasted only 33 minutes against the Penguins November 23rd. His save percentage of .773 was the second time in the past five games that he fell below the .800 mark and the fourth time he was south of .900. Four of those five games also witnessed a GAA of 4.0 or worse; Saturday night’s catastrophe logged in at 7.78.

We would not be surprised if Henrik Lundqvist got the start Saturday night against the Canadiens.

He is coming off yet another weak performance---a 4-2 loss to Toronto in which he allowed a couple of soft goals. Lundqvist has now allowed four goals in three of his last four starts and looks out of rhythm. Ranger coach Alain Vigneault could go either way with his star netminder. He could give him plenty of action and let him play out of his slump or give Lundqvist more rest and play Antti Raanta more often. We suspect in the short term Vigneault will take the former approach.

Henrik Lundqvist allowed four goals on 27 shots in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

It's the third time in his last four games that he's given up four goals. Two of Toronto's goals were scored on the man-advantage. Lundqvist has an 18-10-1 record with a 2.60 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage this season. It'll be interesting to see if the Rangers go back to Lundqvist in Montreal tomorrow, or if they turn to Antti Raanta.
