He has posted a 1.47 goals-against average, a .954 save percentage and two shutouts over that span. The Tampa Bay Lightning will look to recapture some of the success they had against King Henrik earlier in the Eastern Conference Final, but it won't be easy if his history in these type of games is any indication.

Henrik Lundqvist is expected to get the start on Sunday in Game 5.

Well, if he got the start in Game 4 after giving up six goals in back-to-back games, he certainly should get the start after his stellar performance Friday in which he turned aside 38 of 39 shots in a 5-1 win over Tampa Bay. He is 10-6 in the post-season with a 2.05 GAA and a .930 save percentage.
May 24 - 8:34 AM

Henrik Lundqvist stopped 38 of 39 shots during Friday's 5-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 4 in the Eastern Conference Final.

Lundqvist had given up 12 goals in Games 2 and 3 combined but he (and his teammates) were much better tonight. The Rangers goaltender made several key saves throughout the game, but the entire team was much better in front of him. The 33-year-old faced 19 shots and several quality scoring chances in the second period, but he was more than up to the task. Lundqvist is now 10-6 in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs. He has a 2.05 goals-against-average and a .930 save percentage this postseason. Lundqvist was named the game's first star.

Henrik Lundqvist is feeling confident despite two rocky starts.

"Well, 12 goals in two games, of course you're going to question somethings," Lundqvist said. "But I have a lot of confidence in myself and the way I play and the way we play as a team. I think we all feel we can beat this team. Just small corrections that need to be made here and then we're right there. Obviously special teams have been a big part of the series so far. It's something we focus on. It's a new day a new opportunity to feel good about your game and try to get a win." Rangers coach Alain Vigneault has already made it clear that Lundqvist will start on Friday. Despite surrendering 12 goals in his last two contests, he still has a 2.12 GAA and .926 save percentage in 15 playoff contests.

In case there was any doubt, Henrik Lundqvist is starting on Friday.

When asked to name his starting goaltender, there was laughter and then Rangers coach Alain Vigneault responded with, "Is that a real question?" After being told that it was, Vigneault formally named Lundqvist as the starting goaltender. Lundqvist was one of the best goaltenders in the first two rounds of the playoffs, but he's allowed six goals in back-to-back games. Even with that in mind though, it would have been surprising to see Lundqvist get benched. This team is built around him and it will be very difficult for the Rangers to succeed if he's not at his best.

Henrik Lundqvist is disappointed with the way he's played in the last two games.

He has surrendered 12 goals to the Tampa Bay Lightning on 66 shots in back-to-back losses. "It's really challenging for me the way they move the puck," Lundqvist said after Wednesday night's 6-5 overtime defeat in Game 3. "The way they find open ice in the slot, and scoring chances right in front. I just need to dig deep here to try to be more consistent with my game plan. Try to challenge the shooter then they pass and sometimes you stay back. As a team, if we can be a little bit better, but also I have to be better. Honestly, you're not going to win if I give up six goals." The Rangers will look to get their defense back on track and even the best-of-seven series in Game 4 on Friday.
May 21 - 4:45 PM

Henrik Lundqvist followed up his six-goal effort in Game 2, with another six-goal effort in Wednesday's Game 3 overtime loss.

To make matters worse, he was spotted a 2-0 lead through the first 9:55 of the game. With the loss, Lundqvist's record drops to 9-6 though with just 33 goals against and a .926 save percentage through 15 games this postseason. The Lightning now lead the series 2-1.
