Henrik Lundqvist picked up his seventh shutout of the season last night while stopping 42 Bruin shots.
During his press conference on MSG last night, John Tortorella had nothing but praise for Lundqvist:
“He was not going to let a puck in, you could sense that. It was a game where we needed him. He was absolutely fantastic. Henrik should have six hats on tonight.”
“He competes, you start with preparation and you watch how hard he competes. That has always endeared me to him. He is a pain in the ass to me some times, but he is the backbone of our club”
Mike Keenan said on MSG “He is having the year of his life. He is just spectacular every night and gives them more than a chance to win every night”
Dave Maloney said on MSG, “He continues to track the puck, he continues to battle and he continues to do all the things he has done since the lockout.”
#NYR Lundqvist said he’s more determined to win this year. “The clock is ticking…this is year seven. I really like this team.”
Intense game tonight, a lot of action.. Boys were working so hard in front of me, great to have that support! #lovethisteam
