Adam Rotter: I wonder how much Henrik Lundqvist's game 4 and 5 against Pittsburgh played into this. I mean, the last time we saw Henrik Lundqvist he was struggling mightily and being pulled. That said, he was pretty much the whole reason the Rangers made the playoffs and is certainly, at least to me, easily one of the top 5 goalies in the NHL, let alone top 50 players.
