Henrik Lundqvist turned away 28 of 31 shots during the overtime loss to Team Europe in Sunday's semi-final match.
Lundqvist was excellent for Team Sweden, save for the three goals. Marian Gaborik put one in from an acute angle along the goal line, and Tomas Tatar was able to bury both of his rebounds. Still, seven goals against in three games on 126 combined shots is pretty good in a best-on-best tournament. Sep 25 - 4:10 PM

Henrik Lunqvist will defend Sweden's crease in Sunday's semi-final against Team Europe.

Lunqvist has turned away 81 of 85 shots in his two games of play. He shutout Finland, and lost in a thrilling overtime to North America. Europe doesn't quite boast the fire power of even Finland, so it seems fair to say that Sweden is in good hands.

Henrik Lundqvist wasn't great, but he was good enough to lead Sweden to a 6-3 victory over Finland on Saturday.

Lundqvist played the entire game for Sweden, facing 14 shots and allowing three goals. The small amount of shots faced by Lundqvist is indicative of the quality on the back end for Sweden. After failing to get the Rangers to the Stanley Cup final, King Henrik is hoping to lead Sweden to a World Cup title.

Henrik Lundqvist participated fully in Monday's practice with Team Sweden.

He took a puck to the ribs in a different on-ice session last week, but feels fine aside from a little soreness. Lundqvist said it hasn't hindered his mobility or reach, so he doesn't expect it to be an issue.
Sep 5 - 1:43 PM

Henrik Lundqvist says he's fine after taking a puck to the ribs during a recent practice.

"A few days ago I took a puck right to the rib cage when my equipment somehow moved," Lundqvist said. "I did have some discomfort, and it’s sore and stiff and probably will be for a while, but I’m OK." Lundqvist underwent an MRI soon after, but also said that he was able to skate the following day. It doesn't sound like the discomfort is strong enough to keep him out of the World Cup.

Henrik Lundqvist offered a rather blunt assessment of the second period of the Rangers' series-losing 6-3 loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday.

Lundqvist allowed four goals in that frame and had to watch the Rangers' season end while warming the bench. "The second period it was a feeling of embarrassment to give up that many goals but also a sense of hopelessness in being able to come up with saves and the score being the score in the second period, it was definitely not a good feeling," Lundqvist said. "I had to sit in the third and think about what went wrong. Going to need a couple of days to analyze this, even the season as a whole, what was good what was not good and you have to learn from it. I think we played a team that was smarter, better and had better goaltending." At the age of 34 his time is passing. He might have quite a few years left in him, but as we go further from his prime years, the odds of him declining increases. While the Rangers enjoyed some deep playoff runs during his prime, they haven't won the Stanley Cup with him.

Henrik Lundqvist made it through just two periods in Game 5 against Pittsburgh.

Lundqvist was hung out to try, surrendering six goals on 25 shots through the first 40 minutes. He leaves trailing 6-2, and if the Rangers don't pull off a miracle then their season will come to an end. Antti Raanta has replaced Lundqvist for the third.
Apr 23 - 5:21 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will take the net in Saturday's Game 5 against Pittsburgh.

For all the troubles Lundqvist has had through the first four games of the series, only nine pucks on 90 shots have beaten the all-world netminder. In 20 career playoff games against Pittsburgh coming into today's matinee, he's 10-10 with a .924 save percentage and 44 goals against.

Henrik Lundqvist allowed four goals on just 18 shots before getting pulled in the second period of a 5-0 Game 4 loss to Pittsburgh.

The King just wasn't on his game as the Penguins had their way with him, most notably Evgeni Malkin who had four points. Lundqvist falls to 1-2 this post-season with a 3.27 goals against average and .900 save percentage. He will have to improve all across the board if the Rangers hope to stay alive.
