Rangers 3, Devils 0 -- Eastern Conference Finals Game 3: DeBoer Says Lundqvist Was The Difference

New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist turned away 36 shots in his team’s 3-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils Saturday afternoon in Game 3 of the 2012 NHL Eastern Conference Finals. The Rangers got only 21 shots, but Lundqvist’s play kept the Rangers in the game until they could finally generate some offense in the third period.

“I think their goalie, you know, was the difference. We generated some opportunities, some zone time, moved the puck around well,” said Devils coach Peter DeBoer. "When you lose a game like this, where we out chance and out play the other team for long stretches, easy to look at it under a microscope and say, oh, boy, they played two great shifts here and that was the difference in the game.

“We strung together six or seven great shifts. We didn’t capitalize on it. That’s the story of the game. So, you know, we had opportunities. If we find a way to score one in the first two periods, it’s a different game. We didn’t.”
