Henrik Lundqvist is 5-0 in his past five starts, allowing 14 goals on 154 shots and stopping 91% of his shots.
Lundqvist has won 6 of his last 7 after going 1-3-2 to start the season.
Lundqvist said that he is feeling "better and better" but that his improved play goes "hand-in-hand" with the structure being played in front of him. (NYR Game Notes)
Lundqvist said that he can focus more on the shooter and be more aggressive when he feels the players in front of him are "in the right place." (NYR Game Notes)
He added, "there's no secret it's so much more fun to be at the rink, go to practice, travel when you are winning and guys are smiling. We're going to continue to smile hopefully and get more wins."
Lundqvist said that things "can turn for you fast" and that it's important to stay humble and be "honest" about your own game. (NY Post)
Larry Brooks said on HC@Noon that he feels that as Lundqvist goes, the Rangers go and that when he is playing well there is an "infusion" of confidence.
Adam Rotter: Henrik has been better since sitting for those two games, despite his numbers not necessarily reflecting that. He's made a bunch of important saves at key moments in almost every game during this winning streak and was excellent in the final two periods against Boston. He, as well as the players in front of him, need to be better and go up another notch or two but things are on a much better track now than they were last week.
