The Lundqvist Plan Is Not Working

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

The theory in radically reducing Henrik Lundqvist’s workload so the Rangers’ franchise goaltender would be fresher for the long haul of a deep playoff run is certainly sound.

But in practice, it is not working.

Because there was yet another goal (or two) the goaltender would have wanted back in Friday’s dispiriting 4-2 defeat to the Maple Leafs at the Garden that followed a simple, yet stirring tribute to the late NYPD Det. Steven McDonald that featured a ceremonial puck drop from his wife, Patti Ann, and son, Conor.

Because it was yet another game in which Lundqvist, who seemed off-balance throughout, had trouble with his reads. Another game in which a funny one went in reasonably early to put the Rangers in a hole.
