Rangers Will Depend On Lundqvist And The Surprising Wild

from Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun,

- One of the best in the league at any time, King Henrik is now 8-2 in his past 10 post-season games that the Rangers have faced potential elimination. Even better, after New York's 5-1 win at Pittsburgh on Friday, Lundqvist has a .953 save percentage and 1.38 goals against average in that 10-game stretch.

It may mean little if the Rangers forwards regress to the poor play they displayed earlier in the series, but given the suspect play of Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury in Game 5, the tone in this matchup may be starting to shift....

- Has the Minnesota Wild figured out the key to shutting down the Stanley Cup champions?

In a series that is turning out to be more interesting than many figured, the Wild are all square with the Hawks after four games and have been doing it by stifling the Chicago attack....

more on the Rangers and Wild plus a few more hockey topics...
