The Montreal Canadiens’ record-setting goalie claimed the Hart Trophy, the Vezina Trophy and the Ted Lindsay Award at the NHL’s annual postseason bash Wednesday night.
Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets beat out Henrik Lundqvist of the Rangers to win the 2012-13 Vezina Trophy.
It’s only the second round, but the Rangers have to be feeding off the momentum provided by Lundqvist’s turn. If he keeps it up, I could be put in position to admit that Lundqvist did indeed earn his crown.
King Henrik was named as one of three finalists for the Vezina Trophy, awarded annually to the NHL’s top player between the pipes.
Lundqvist is the Rangers’ best asset, and if they are going to hold off the Winnipeg Jets or Buffalo Sabres — and they probably will — they have to continue to lean on Lundqvist.
Veteran goalie Tim Thomas, who has said he won’t play this season, was traded by the Boston Bruins to the New York Islanders on Thursday for a conditional second-round draft choice either next year or in 2015.
The Rangers-Bruins rivalry is coming back to life. After meeting twice in the first three games of the regular season, there will be one more meeting before the postseason.
The lockout was a disaster. Everyone knows it, and we blogged and tweeted about it. But now we move forward and start talking about actual hockey. I don’t know about you, but I am fired up. Now it’s time to look at the Rangers and how they stack up this season.
If going from being a Columbus Blue Jacket to a Broadway Blueshirt carries a whole lot of pressure, Rick Nash isn’t feeling it on his broad shoulders.
The goaltending is good enough. The defense is good enough. The mindset is strong enough. That’s why in a draft that is strong on defensive players, Glen Sather has to look for offensive talent.
Henrik Lundqvist’s long wait to win the Vezina Trophy finally ended Wednesday night, as one of hockey’s good guys came away with the ultimate goalie prize.
Rangers star Henrik Lundqvist uttered the expletive under his breath — but right into the microphone — during his acceptance speech, resulting in some hoots, hollers and a hearty applause from the surprised crowd.
The Rangers’ tireless Swedish netminder won the award on his fourth nomination, going 39-18-5 with five shutouts and a 1.97 goals-against average while leading the Rangers to the Eastern Conference’s best regular-season record.
Henrik Lundqvist, the Rangers’ superstar goaltender, has been named a finalist for this season’s Vezina Trophy, which is awarded to the league’s best goalie of the year.
The Rangers have a legitimate chance to win the Cup. They shouldn’t have a real problem with the eighth-seeded Senators, and it’s time to get legitimate and knock these imposters out of the way!
