Henrik Lundqvist thinks it's important that the Rangers don't get ahead of themselves as they begin training camp.
Lundqvist and the New York Rangers came up short in the Stanley Cup Final and while they want another shot at winning a championship, they have to get through a lot of obstacles first before they'll have that opportunity. "Mindset is very important," said Lundqvist. "It's a hard, long season. We need to reset. We have to be ready to start over. You can't get too far ahead. It is a process." Sep 16 - 10:37 AM

Henrik Lundqvist is optimistic about the New York Rangers chances of winning the Cup after falling just short in 2014.

The Rangers made it to the finals, but lost to the Los Angeles Kings in five games. "I think the core is still there," Lundqvist said. "But to lose the guys we did, they played a big part for us last year. I hope the new guys can [come in] and transition to a different style of play, maybe, obviously different teammates, so I'm excited to see what they can bring." Among the players the Rangers lost over the offseason are Brian Boyle, Brad Richards, and Anton Stralman. However, they've brought in, among others, Lee Stempniak and Dan Boyle.

Henrik Lundqvist will be seeking a better start to the 2014-15 season after he struggled out of the gate last year.

"I think it's important that you don't think too much about last season or already now start thinking about how we want to win, we want to be in the playoffs, because there is so much work that needs to be done before you get there," Lundqvist said. "You just need to be focused on October and the first few games because the start we had last year shows that if everything is not in place early on it can be very challenging." His rocky start included a 12-16-3 record along with a .907 save percentage and a 2.76 goals-against average in 32 appearances from Oct. 3-Jan. 6. Lundqvist and the Rangers improved as the season progressed and he finished the campaign with a .920 save percentage and a 2.36 GAA.

Henrik Lundqvist's off-season routine comprises of lots of family time in Sweden, light exercises, tennis and teaching at his own goalie camp.

Lundqvist, his wife Therese and two-year old daughter Charlise spend the summer in Gothenburg, a coastal town where he played hockey for Frolunda HC of the Swedish Elite League. Rest and social time are amongst the top priorities for the King, as he experienced the most action-packed year of his career involving a wearing two-month slump, a silver medal in the Olympics and a Stanley Cup Finals appearance. The 32 year-old says he plays a lot of tennis, in addition to attending the Swedish Open tournament in Bastad. As August wears on, the star goaltender will increase the rhythm of his workouts to prepare for training camp.

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."

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.
Jun 11 - 11:23 PM

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.
Jun 11 - 2:13 PM

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.

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.
