Original Post:

Earlier this morning Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist joined WFAN’s morning show of Boomer and Carton. Here is part of a recap from the early part of the 12 minute interview

  • Craig Carton asks why Gaborik didn’t shoot against Philadelphia. Lundqvist says he doesn’t know.
  • Carton says that he HATES Tortorella and thinks he should have been fired after his incident against Washington in the 2009 playoffs
  • Carton claims that Tortorella doesn’t like Avery, Hank says he does like Avery and that Avery is important to the team.
  • Lundqvist calls missing the playoffs “heartbreaking”
  • He didn’t care that the Flyers went to the Finals, only concerned with the Rangers and them getting better
  • When someone like Ovechkin is coming down on him, Lundqvist says he tries to be confident and be patient.
  • Later in the interview Carton asks Lundqvist to guarantee the Rangers making the playoffs and Lundqvist responds, “Absolutely… we will. I promise.”
