Henrik Lundqvist is a man of routine.
Maybe it's just superstition, but The King's past two entrances on the ice for Games 1 & 2 could not have been more similar. Most goalies skate a few laps, hit the posts, tap them a couple of times and then get on with it. But the 38-year-old goes with a bit of a different process and he made sure to replicate it to a TEE in the Rangers' opening two games.
Just look at this... come on!
Can't make this stuff up. Don't you just love goalies?!
The Rangers didn't win the opening contest but Lundqvist did have a respectable performance with 37 saves on 39 shots. Not bad for the NHL's oldest tendy!
We'll have to wait and see if he brings the same routine for Game 3... if he gets the start.
