Henrik Lundqvist says that he "feels refreshed physically and mentally", which is good news for the New York Rangers as they intend to finish the playoffs with a win this time.

Lundqvist had started an average of 66 games during his last seven seasons in the league. However this season, due to his vascular injury, he saw just 46 games. Which makes his 30-13-3 record with five shutouts, a .922 save percentage and a 2.25 GAA across 28 Quality Starts all the more impressive. "You just know when he gets into those zones and he's stopping pucks," teammate Marc Staal said. "He kind of gets up on top of his crease, on his toes and he makes like four or five in a row where he is just hunting the puck all over the place and you can see he's fired up." Lunqvist owns a career 43-48 playoff record across 79 starts and 92 games with nine shutouts, a .922 save percentage and a 2.24 GAA.
