Dan Rosen at NHL.com was able to speak with Henrik Lundqvist about the Rangers lack of offense during the postseason…
“Honestly, it’s not a concern for me at all how many goals we score. I just try to focus on my game. My approach to the game and my mindset doesn’t change no matter how many goals we score. A lot of times two or three goals have been enough. I try to approach it the same way — focus on my things, the things I can control.
“We will have nights where we score more goals and some nights we’re going to win 1-0 or 2-1. I’m fine with that.”
…what an effin teammate. Hank has every reason in the world to call out his fellow Blueshirts, but that wouldn’t be him. Haven’t heard one peep. No frustration, no backhanded comments, nothing. Just keeps his head down and continues to bail the Rangers out.
…what makes Lundqvist’s career even more remarkable is that at no point during his Rangers tenure has he been blessed with a capable offense. Since his NHL debut, he’s basically been counted on to be at his very best every night just to give the Rangers a chance at being competitive the last seven years.
…because of the Rangers anemic offense during the playoffs, every save in every game is so crucial that he can’t take a second off or it’ll cost them the game. No pressure Hank.
