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. Apr 25 - 6:43 AM
