Magnus Hellberg made his first NHL start yesterday, stopping 22 of 24 shots to pick up his first NHL win.

Hellberg was named the third star of the game and was given the game puck by Rick Nash.

After the game, Hellberg said (via the Rangers Game Note):

  • On the emotions he is feeling following his first NHL win…"I am a little overwhelmed right now. Of course I am very happy. This is something I've been fighting for for five years, so to be able to get this opportunity in the last game of the season is very big for me. Obviously, the guys played great in front of me. I think Pittsburgh was the better team in the first period. We took over in the second and then in the third we played really well. We managed to keep them away from our net and the guys in front of me were really good with rebounds, good communication. To be my first NHL start, I'm very happy with how the guys played in front of me for sure."

10:10PM: On MSG, Lundqvist said after the game:

  • On shock of how the game turned, "hockey games can turn fast. Right now it's a test for us, mentally, to turn this thing around. We try to do the right thing out there and work hard. It's definitely a challenge right now to get everything going in the right direction."
  • What do you fall back on, "you try to focus and break it down as small as you can and focus on the good things and what you do well, try to have success and help the team win. I talked about it the last couple of games, making that extra save and it can turn the game in the right direction with a great goal or extra save. Today I think there were a lot of good things 5 on 5 and then they are very confident on their PP and made some really good plays. We talked about those plays but they still managed to score on them. Good players but we need to kill them off. The third one, I didn't stop that one. Overall just a tough game."
  • On the quick goals again, "No. I don't really have a good explanation. Right now when bad things happen you get out of structure and allow some chances. I have to look at my own game, I can't just look at the team game. I have to be better, I know that, we all know that, I think I have stretches throughout the last few games where I play well and do the right things but also times when I need to come up with that extra save and turn the game around. I am doing everything I can to get to that level. It's a game where there are some open chances, it's tough to deal with but you need to play it the right way and not questioning anything or my instincts."

9:07PM: Henrik Lundqvist has been pulled after allowing 5 goals on 24 shots in the first two periods.

Recently called up Magnus Hellberg is in to relieve Lundqvist.
