Following his win in the Gold Medal game of the World Championships, Henrik Lundqvist said:

  • What does winning mean, "so many things. Sitting in NY ten days ago, this is what I pictured myself, to be here with my brother, to hold this trophy. What a game, so exciting. It's been an amazing week, to be part of this team, this group, to spend time with my brother and then play exciting hockey, that is what I was looking for.

It was very disappointing end in New York the way we did but I recharged and wanted to play with my brother again and come here and experience this was awesome." (TSN)

Henrik Lundqvist met with the media on MSG following the Rangers loss in Game 5 and said:

  • On the winner, "I read a high shot and he didn't go high, that is what happened."
  • On losing in this fashion again and moving on, "you don't have a choice, you have to. That's it. You are disappointed obviously, frustrated and you just have to go home and regroup like we did last time. Obviously, it stinks. We battled back, 4-3 lead late in the game...they made a play, I made a save and then it was a scramble, someone got stuck on my leg and I couldn't move. I don't know if it was us or them. In a play like that you need a bounce and the last couple of games in this building we have not gotten the bounce, for whatever reason they are finding a way to get it done on home ice and we have to do the same to make sure that we come back here."

  • On them getting to the front of the net, "well, it's two good plays by them. We played well enough to win, there is no question about it. It's really tough to lose this one. Clearly they have gotten the bounces in the first two games, just gotta go home and regroup. It's a really tough loss, being up a couple of goals, especially late in the game. That last deflection, I don't even know how he did that, the way he angled the stick I don't even think he knew he hit the net, I think, he was good tonight and they made some good plays but I wasn't good enough. Coming up with that extra save in the end, that is my job and it's tough plays on deflections but I gotta find a way."

Henrik Lundqvist spoke with the media following the Rangers Game 1 loss and said:

  • On the winner, "I think there is three guys in line with that puck and I didn't pick it up. It hit me in the head and it's in. I assume that having that many guys in line with the puck it would not end up right in front of me but it did. It's a tough one, the way I felt and played this game, it comes down to one play where maybe you were guessing a little when I didn't see it and I was waiting for the puck to come out. Yea, it sucks."
  • On losing that way, "that is the life of the goalie. I make 100 decisions, 150, 200, I don't know, throughout the game and play my game and do the right thing and it comes down to one play where you don't see the puck and you wait for it instead of trying to be more active. That is the one play that I get questions for, it's just how it goes. There are a lot of things to be happy about, the way I felt, the way we played as a team and we had a lot of chances but right now in a game like this you don't have room for a lot of errors."

On what this wins says about the team…"We needed our best effort tonight and we got it. All 20 guys worked extremely hard. We had jump from the get-go, we created more chances. Montreal had some good chances in the first, but after that we controlled the game. But as long as it's a one-goal game you never know - a bad bounce or a good play by them and it's a tied game. I think the patience we showed and the confidence in the situation was great to see."

  • On growing frustration as the game went along…"I think it's important we start with ourselves and not look at what they are doing. Let's start with ourselves. Yes, they are a good team. We have to give more at home, in the playoffs, or we aren't going to win. We need more; it's as simple as that. Obviously special teams were a big part of the game tonight. I didn't come up with the saves there on the penalty kill. They made some good plays. Our power play did not get going and get any momentum for us. We all need to be better in the next one."

  • "I think is is one of our better games as a team in a long time. We had a plan going into the game of how we needed to play and we executed perfectly. MTL is one of the better transition teams and a lot of the games that we have played up here, they beat us on odd-man rushes and breakaways and today we get that early goal and then we played a smart game. We talked about what we needed to do and we did it. As a goalie, to see how hard we worked tonight, it's inspiring. A lot of fun out there in the first game. I think everyone felt that we left everything we got out there and what really set the tone was killing off some big PPs for them in the first."
  • On his game, "I did feel pretty good the last few games but it's been different types of games. A lot of odd-man rushes and the structure we had today made it easier for me to play my game and to be solid and I had to come up with a couple of big ones but we minimized their big chances. Sometimes you feel good but you don't get the result but today we got the result and a lot of it was the structure we had and the PK. They had some confidence going into their PP and we talked a lot heading into the series about our PK and today we did a great job."

Henrik Lundqvist spoke after the game on MSG and said:

  • On tonight's game and how he felt, "I felt like we played really well defensively, it was a tight game. I felt like the first goal was going to be meaningful tonight. We got caught with some penalties in the second where they took advantage with a big goal. 5 on 5 we played really well but they are a good team. We need some extra plays to really get in front and create the big chances and it was tough for us. Other than I thought it was a lot of good things the way we competed and the decisions we made with and without the puck."
  • On the Ovechkin goal, "in that situation I am trying to cover the short side and Kleiner is trying to get out there on the far side, unfortunately it went through him. It's tough, it's a hard shot and when they make good plays side to side it's hard to be in perfect position to make a block. The shot is tough to stop even if you can see it, deflection or not, they got a couple of looks but other than that I think we did a pretty good job with their top guys."

Henrik Lundqvist spoke on MSG after the Rangers win and said,

  • On the game, "We played really good. For 58 minutes it was probably one of our better efforts defensively and just a smart game and then the last two minutes we made some decisions with the puck that we need to do a little bit better. For 58 minutes it was one of our better games."
  • On the save on Giroux, "the tricky part with their PP is that they move the puck so well going side to side and sometimes you are late to be in position and that is kind of what happened to me. It was a long reach, but it was important to get the win here. The way we played, we had it under control and the last two, we need to keep our focus for 60 minutes. They made some good plays too."

I know he's going to be fine, he has proved it in the past and it's just a matter of him finding his groove and rhythm." 

2:04PM: Alain Vigneault announced that Henrik Lundqvist will play in 4 of the Rangers 5 remaining games.

Alain Vigneault said that Henrik Lundqvist will likely play 5-6, likely 6, of the Rangers 8 remaining games this season.

Vigneault said the decision to start Lundqvist tomorrow was made after chatting with goalie coach Benoit Allaire, who felt that Sunday's 6PM start would be a "better fit."

Starting with tomorrow's game it is likely that Lundqvist will play in at least 5 straight games (ANA, SJ, PIT, PHI, WSH) before the Rangers end the season with a back to back in Ottawa and then at home against Pittsburgh.

In the 14 starts before his injury Lundqvist was 9-4-1 with a save percentage of .931.

  • On Hank, "I know he has been following the medical protocol and going through the different stages with Benny on the ice.

Henrik Lundqvist spoke with the media on Saturday about his injury and said (NYR):

  • What happened, "first period in Florida there was a save where my body was going one way and my leg was going the other way and it had an impact on my hip. We will take some time here to get some treatment and heal."
  • On getting into a groove before the playoffs, "right now I am just focusing on the first week, 10 days. We have a good plan of what I need to do and from there you take it step by step and how it feels. We expect it to be 2-3 but we have to see how I react to the treatments and the exercise I will do here moving forward. That is where my focus is, then we will see where we are in the schedule and timing wise."
  • Is it precautionary, "My focus right now is to get better and then we will see the timing. I know we are going to LA at the end of the month, we will see if that is a good time, we will have to wait and see, but Benny and the medical team have a good plan. We talked about it and will take it from there."
