Henrik Lundqvist notched his fifth career playoff shutout as the New York Rangers prevailed in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference final versus the New Jersey Devils 3-0 on Monday night.
Lundqvist almost has as many shutouts (two) in the two-plus rounds of this postseason as he had in his five other playoff seasons. Even though Lundqvist was only called on to make 21 saves, quite a few of them were of the high-quality variety. He also had a ton of help from his teammates, who blocked 26 shots in the game. The netminder has a 1.52 goals-against average and .940 save percentage in the playoffs.
