Henrik Lundqvist was outstanding in the New York Rangers' net Friday night, despite his team's loss in double overtime to the Los Angeles Kings.
"I told you going into the playoffs that I wanted to leave everything out there," said Lundqvist, whose team was outshot 92-49 over the last two games and 51-30 in the Friday decider. "I prepared so hard for every game, I have never been so tired. "I feel like I did everything I could in my preparation to help the team win but it was not enough against this really good team. We had to go through so much to get here." Jun 14 - 10:17 AM

Henrik Lundqvist gave it all he had, stopping a whopping 48 shots in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final, but ultimately surrendered the Cup winning goal to Alec Martinez late in the second overtime to concede the championship in a 3-2 heartbreaker to the Kings.

It doesn't get much worse, as the Rangers came oh so close to capturing their first NHL title in 20 years. But Lundqvist and the Rangers can take pride in their accomplishments. They survived three gruelling series' and came within three wins of the Stanley Cup. It's over for now, but after King Henrik signed a long-term extension, the Rangers and their elite goaltender hope to do it all again next season with a better result.

Henrik Lundqvist thinks the Los Angeles Kings will start feeling the pressure if the Rangers can win one more game.

If the Rangers take Game 5, then the series will move back to Madison Square Garden, where New York has been very effective in elimination games. Overcoming a 3-0 series deficit is a huge task, but the Rangers won't be in a terrible position anymore if they manage to win on Friday.

Henrik Lundqvist owns an 8-0 record in elimination games at Madison Square Garden.

He set an NHL record Wednesday when he extended his winning streak to eight games. "It's about competing. When everything is on the line, you just have to challenge yourself the right way, I guess, as a team and personally," he said. "You have to go out there and leave everything out there and be extremely focused. One mistake and the season is over. You're definitely aware of that." Lundqvist was excellent in Game 4 and he'll need to be even better on Friday night for a chance to stretch his streak to nine contests.

Henrik Lundqvist stopped 40 shots and guided the Rangers to a 2-1 victory over the L.A. Kings in Game 4 on Wednesday night, narrowing the series deficit to 3-1 in the Stanley Cup Final.

Lundqvist did everything the Rangers could have asked for and more, shunning the Kings with 15 saves in the third period and just barely keeping pucks from crossing the line despite many close calls. Lundqvist has faced elimination five times in these playoffs, and is 5-0 with just five goals allowed combined. Coming off three straight shaky performances in the Cup Final, King Henrik played like his dominant self on Wednesday night and the Rangers have life against the feisty Kings. Game 5 goes Friday night from California.

The New York Rangers have won seven straight home contests when facing elimination.

Henrik Lundqvist has been particularly effective in those contests, posting a 0.98 GAA and .967 save percentage. The Rangers have to hope that trend continues as they look to avoid being swept against the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday.

New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist feels like the Los Angeles Kings have all the puck luck right now.

"We are doing a lot of good things but you look at the goals and we put two in our own net and then just a tough play on the third one," Lundqvist said, referring to the Kings' 3-0 victory on Monday. The Rangers are now behind 3-0 in the series. The Rangers had an opportunity to win Game 1 and 2, but they surrendered two-goal leads in both contests. Now those two missed opportunities have to sting even more.
Jun 10 - 10:17 AM

Henrik Lundqvist had an outing to forget Monday as the Rangers dropped a 3-0 score to Los Angeles and fell behind 3-0 in the Stanley Cup Finals.

The effort put forth by his teammates means Lundqvist is not solely to blame for this result, but by allowing three goals on just 15 shots he didn't hold the fort well enough to keep a victory within reach. King Henrik and the Blueshirts will need a miraculous comeback if they expect to hoist the Cup.
Jun 9 - 10:56 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will be looking to bounce back in New York after getting off to a rough start in Los Angeles during the Stanley Cup Final.

He owns a 3.11 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage in the first two games of the series after he entered the Cup Final with a 2.04 GAA and a .928 save percentage. His workload has increased and playing all those overtime minutes has played a part in that. In his previous first 20 games, he faced an average of 27.2 shots, but against Los Angeles that number has increased to 43.5.

The New York Rangers are upset at a non-call early in the third period of their 5-4 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Kings in Saturday night's Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final.

The play they're questioning occurred when Dwight King scored to pull the Kings to within one at 4-3. As Justin Williams moved the puck to Matt Greene at the point, King headed to the Rangers' goal. NY defenseman Ryan McDonagh engaged him at the top of the blue paint and soon King, McDonagh and goalie Henrik Lundqvist were tangled. King somehow managed to tip Greene's shot from the point as Lundqvist was unable to move. Lundqvist was unhappy, throwing his arms up in disbelief after the goal as he was pinned under King and McDonagh. He talked to the referee during a TV timeout soon after, seeking an explanation. Lundqvist he just wanted consistency, pointing to a goalie interference penalty to Rangers forward Benoit Pouliot in the second period. "I don't think it's a penalty but you've got to stop the play if the goalie can't move in his crease," Lundqvist said. "And it's not like I'm outside the crease. I play pretty deep. Just be consistent with it."

Henrik Lundqvist set aside 39 shots, but that wasn’t enough as the Rangers fell in Game 2 to the Kings 5-4 in double overtime.

Lundqvist was expected to be very busy in this series, and that’s just what has transpired; he’s now faced 87 shots. It looked as if the Rangers had all of the momentum in the third period, up 4-2, when Dwight King scored a controversial goal on a tip-in on what could've been called goalie interference. King, who was also being touched by Ryan McDonagh, wasn’t whistled for it and Lundqvist’s former teammate Marian Gaborik scored six minutes later to tie it up at 4. Lundqvist still boasts a 2.16 goals-against average and .925 save percentage. He’ll need to try to dig deep and be even better as the series shifts to New York, with his squad down 2-0.

Henrik Lundqvist was excited to play in his first Stanley Cup Final game this past Wednesday.

He won a Swedish Elite League title with Frolunda in 2004-05 and he's played in two Olympic gold medal games, where he won in 2006. He has experience in big games to draw on while he competes for the Stanley Cup. "So it's a mix of being in the Olympics, being at All-Star weekend. But it's fun," he said. "It's a lot to take in, but it's also exciting, you know, to just see a different side, I guess. It's still the same game, but it's a lot going on. I think that's exciting."

With all three of their goals in Game 1 going to the blocker side of the goalie in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final, have the Los Angeles Kings found a secret to success against the Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist?

"You do your homework a little bit," Kings center Anze Kopitar said. "Sometimes guys think they have him figured out and he still comes up with saves." "All I know is he’s a good goalie," right wing Justin Williams said. "He’s going to make most of the saves that he sees. Shots, screens, tips, rebounds is kind of the model around here for [scoring]."

Henrik Lundqvist posted an excellent performance in his first Stanley Cup game, but was beaten three times on 40 shots as New York fell 3-2 in overtime to the Kings on Wednesday night.

Lundqvist was essential in the Rangers’ bid to extend the game past regulation. Although New York broke out to an early 2-0 lead in the first period, the Kings tied and controlled play in the third period, outshooting the Rangers 20-3. Unfortunately for the Rangers, a good start goes for naught as they dropped the series opener for the first time in these playoffs.
