Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist has had his fill of the Flyers the last two seasons. After last year’s shootout loss that cost the Rangers a playoff spot, Lundqvist is determined to not let the same thing happen again this season.
This season, Lundqvist has been stellar and the Flyers got a healthy dose of that this afternoon as he earned his ninth shutout of the season, 33rd in his career in a 7-0 Rangers romp. Still, the memories of last season’s failure linger on for both Lundqvist and the rest of the team and with that sort of motivation pushing them, the Rangers hope to not have a repeat performance of that this season.
