The Lundqvist Save on Weber


Sometimes, words don’t need to be expressed over a great player. Henrik Lundqvist has and still is great. Don’t believe me? Ask Shea Weber after this absolute rocket of a one-timer that Lundqvist got with his outstretched glove to rob the scary Canadiens defenseman with the hardest shot.

Look how hard and accurate it was. And it didn’t just sit in Lundqvist’s glove. It went into the thumb and juggled indicating the velocity Weber got on it. Think Fulton Reed in The Mighty Ducks.

At this point with a period to go, Lundqvist has been the best player in the series against the Canadiens. If the Rangers win, it’s due to the King, who has outplayed Carey Price.

It’s not over yet. It all depends on the mindset of the Blueshirts. But make no mistake about it. They can thank Lundqvist for leading 2-1 with the third period about to start.
