Evening Line- Henrik Lundqvist

“I mean, I loved Torts, you should say hello [on Friday]. I’ll never forget the first time he walked into the locker room, you’d heard a lot about him and how things went in Tampa and how he was pretty tough on goalies at times, so there was so much respect there.

“You respected him and feared him at the same time. You had to be on your toes. But I loved that. He was so good at motivating the team at critical moments and that’s something I really appreciated, too. I was ready to run through a brick wall every time I walked out from the locker room. He was very good at getting everyone to that mindset, where you were preparing for a kind of war. I loved playing for him.”

-Henrik Lundqvist to Larry Brooks who has an article on Lundqvist's career in New York.
