Henrik Lundqvist has only given up five goals in his last six Games 7, all of them victories.
Why? Because he does things like this:
In the first period of Friday night’s Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final, the New York Rangers goalie faced a defected shot from the point from Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Anton Stralman.
The puck bounced high in the air and Lundqvist made a reflexive lunge with his glove …just nudging the puck over the cross-bar and on top of the net.
Here’s a look in GIF form:
The Rangers are trying to advance to the Stanley Cup Final for the second straight season.
Lundqvist, with a win, will have more Game 7 victories than any other goalie in NHL history with seven.
