Henrik Lundqvist said earlier this week that the rest of this season is about him wanting to feel good about his game and where the Rangers are headed. (NY Post)
He said that he is still taking things day by day and that he will have time to reflect after the season ends. (NY Post)
On how the season has gone, Lundqvist said that when you know you are going to get a lot of chances against you "you wind up trying to do too much even though you have it in your mind not to." (NY Post)
Lundqvist said that he hasn't changed his mind about wanting to stay with the Rangers and said "I also want to believe that we can be a competitive team in the fall and build off that. I think we can be." (NY Post)
- In February, Lundqvist said "with the feelings I have for this organization, I have a commitment to stay here and battle, and that means in the good times and bad." (NY Post)
He is 25-23-6 this season with a .916 save percentage and 2.92 GAA.
Lundqvist was 21-13-4 prior to the All-Star break with a .922 save percentage and 2.61 GAA.
Since the All-Star break, Lundqvist is 4-10-2 with a save percentage of.900 and 3.80 GAA.
Lundqvist faced, on average, seven shots per game more after the All-Star break than he did before it.
Adam Rotter: It has certainly been an up and down season for Lundqvist and the amount of work he had trying to save the Rangers season early on is keeping him out of the lineup now. Yes, the Rangers do want to get a look at Alex Georgiev but in a perfect world the 58 games he has started so far season would be the total amount he would start for the entire season. Henrik can't be the goalie that he was and carry the Rangers by himself, but if he is getting help, even just a little, he can still be a top flight goalie for the Rangers. A lot needs to happen for the Rangers to be competitive next season and challenge for the playoffs, but if Lundqvist is good the Rangers should be in the mix.
