Rangers Vs. Devils, Game 3 Reaction: Henrik Lundqvist Puts On A Show

Behind a flurry of goals in the third period and an outstanding performance by goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, the New York Rangers took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series over their tri-state rival, the New Jersey Devils. Lundqvist collected his second shutout of the series, and according to the SB Nation blog Blueshirt Banter put on a show Rangers' fans are approving of.

First off, let me welcome you to the Henrik Lundqvist show as this man stood on his head all game long, and came away with his second shutout of the series. As the Rangers were struggling to find their game through the first two periods, Henrik Lundqvist was on his game all afternoon.


What Went Right, What Went Wrong: Rangers / Devils

Meanwhile, SB Nation's In Lou We Trust can't help put give the goaltender all the credit:

Devils fans have to begrudgingly give all the credit to Lundqvist. He fully earned his shutout today. He saw odd man rushes, and came away with a stop. He had an early breakaway in the second period by Ilya Kovalchuk and he got his body in front of him. He had traffic to deal with and still kept it out. He stopped all kinds of shots; impressively flashing the glove for the ones aimed at his supposed weakspot. Lundqvist was the primary, secondary, and tertiary reason why the Rangers were in this game, as well as being in the Eastern Conference Finals at all.

Can Lundqvist keep up his remarkible play in Game 4? We will all find out Monday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.
