Lundqvist Keeping Rangers In The Series

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Lundqvist has started 29 straight games now for the Rangers. He will have all summer to rest. The Rangers need big plays at big moments from big players, like the one from Dubinsky—but their goaltender is their rock, their anchor, their foundation.

Their edge.

“Hank was great for us, like he always is,” said Vinny Prospal, who scored on a rebound in the third to give the Rangers the 2-1 lead that Mike Knuble’s score negated. “But we can’t expect him to do it by himself. We have to give him some support, too.”

Lundqvist is 29, finishing his sixth NHL season already. It seems like only yesterday that Jaromir Jagr looked to his right at training camp in 2005, saw the rookie out of Sweden who was supposed to be a backup in his first North American season that first year after the lockout, and announced, “We have a world-class goalie here.”
