Lundqvist gets the Broadway Hat

In the winners locker room, Rick Nash presented Henrik Lundqvist with the Broadway Hat. Prior to Derick Brassard erupting for a hat trick and two assists along with J.T. Miller’s four points and Nash’s three including a power play goal, Lundqvist made some enormous stops stifling Steven Stamkos with the team ahead 1-0 and then denying Ryan Callahan and Brian Boyle with them nursing a 2-1 lead in a frightful second.

As usual, Lundqvist came up big in an elimination game finishing with 36 saves. He got to fill the ninth part of the Stanley Cup puzzle. He’ll need to be at his best again on Friday as will the entire Blueshirts against a resilient Lightning.
