While it's too early to label him as injured, Henrik Lundqvist admitted that his left shoulder bugged him late in Game 2.
He seemed to be favoring his arm in the third period, but stuck it out. It wouldn't be surprising if he plays through pain in the playoffs, yet with the New York Rangers in a tough spot, any advantage could be deadly against the Boston Bruins. Stay tuned for updates from the team and other sources.
The New York Rangers' putrid power play came up short once more in a 5-2 loss to the Boston Bruins in Game 2 on Sunday.
The Rangers PP went 0-for-5 today. Considering how poorly things have been going, can it really "stink" any more if Carl Hagelin is inserted back into the special teams mix? To be fair to him, he's averaged about 10 seconds of PP time per contest.
Rick Nash finally broke through and scored his first playoff goal in the 2013 playoffs, but it wasn't enough as the New York Rangers lost to the Boston Bruins 5-2 in Game 2 on Sunday.
He now has a single tally on 32 shots in this postseason, giving him a 3.1 shooting percentage. He had 21 goals in 44 games during the regular season. Ryan Callahan scored a beauty for New York's other tally today.
Henrik Lundqvist had some great moments in Game 2 against the Boston Bruins, but the 5-2 score will prompt many to blame him for the New York Rangers' 5-2 loss on Sunday.
He seemed to tweak his arm during the game. While he didn't miss any time, it's something to survey in the time between now and Game 3. Newsday's Arthur Staple reports that Lundqvist hasn't allowed five goals in a single postseason game since 2009.
Michael Del Zotto appears fine after being struck in the ear in the first period of Game One against the Bruins Thursday.
Del Zotto left the ice during the game for a few repairs after a shot that was deflected by Patrice Bergeron hit him on the ear. There's no question about his availability for Game Two Sunday.
Carl Hagelin has only logged 1:51 minutes worth of power-play ice time in the postseason.
That's not likely to change as Rangers coach John Tortorella thinks Hagelin "stinks" with the man advantage. "I don't know why," Tortorella said. "I wish I could put him on the power play, but every time I put him on he stinks."
