Video Of Day: Lundqvist with incredible save on Johansen

During the Rangers 5-2 win over the Blue Jackets in their home opener, star goalie Henrik Lundqvist was at his best. Twice, he robbed Ryan Johansen. The first one was a sprawling save where he couldn’t find the puck which eventually was discovered in his equipment.

The second was jaw dropping. On a Columbus forecheck behind the Rangers net, Lundqvist was caught in no man’s land. All Johansen had to do was tap the puck into an open net or so he thought.

Not much else needs to be said. As we have echoed in this blog and on Twitter, Hank is in a zone. To start the season, he’s 3-0 having stopped 100 of 106 shots. You can’t start much better.
