Last night Henrik Lundqvist made a statement, hes ready to get his name engraved on the Stanley Cup. After an incredible shutout performance in Game 6 at Madison Square Garden Lundqvist topped it saving 35 shots, shutting out the Capitals again in Game 7 at the Verzion Center and sending his Rangers to the eastern conference semifinals.
After falling just short last year to the New Jersey Devils in the eastern conference finals and carrying his team all season to squeeze them into the playoffs Lundqvist looks more determined than ever to bring his team all the way this season. Lundqvist, who has a 1.65 GAA in the playoffs, carried his team through the first round of the NHL playoffs against the explosive scoring Washington Capitals led by Alexander Ovechkin.
Lundqvist looks this year that he is ready to quiet the naysayers who feel he cant win the big one. No one will ever question Lundqvist incredible playing in the regular season but they question his ability to dominate in the playoffs. However over the last two seasons Lundqvist is 3-0 in Game 7's and seems more focused than ever.
