Lundqvist calls loss to Bruins ‘Painful. Extremely painful’

Mar 2, 2014, 10:41 PM EDT

The Boston Bruins pulled away from the New York Rangers on Sunday with a 3-1 third period, notching a 6-3 win overall. Henrik Lundqvist didn’t take it very well.

Rangers captain (and trade rumor magnet) Ryan Callahan pointed to opposing teams capitalizing on their “lapses.” He dismissed questions about those trade rumors and said that he was just going about his business.

“Obviously my heart is still here and I want to be here,” Callahan said. “We’ll just see what happens.”

In that regard, Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault seems optimistic that Callahan will stick around. The Rangers don’t have another game until Wednesday’s trade deadline passes, so it remains to be seen if this is his last game playing for the Blueshirts.

    sorry ryan but don’t give us the “my heart is here crap”

    your heart is with 6 million dollars.

      $6M reportedly won’t get it done! Being the nice guy that he is though it sounds like he is willing to drop down to 6.5M… What a discount for a guy with 11goals and 25pts this year! Better act quick Garth before Ryan comes back to his senses!

        lol wow i thought it was 6…i guess his original number was 7? crazy man. why bring up Garth though….wrong New York GM.

        if ryan callahan gets 6 or more everything will be out of wack. might as well give Nazem Kadri 10 mil a year over 8 years at that point. Geez, this guy is asking for only 1.7 million more than Crosby.

    Watching Stay Puft play was painful.

    Painful isn’t the word, Hank. Something more like “shameful” or “embarrassing” or even “heartless”.
    Playing for 20 minutes out of 60 is pitiful. 15 minutes in the first and another 5 towards the end of the second.
    Girardi lets Boychuck skate into the Rangers zone and instead of hitting him to separate him from the puck, he plays ballerina spinner and lets Boychuck throw the puck to Campbell, who was wide open while the rest of the Rangers played Nicoli Zherdev backchecking, allowing Campbell to score.
    Heartless!
    It is amazing what the lack of Zuccarello is doing to this team.
    We won’t even talk about hits, or the lack thereof.

    Lundqvist far too often is the 2nd best goalie on the ice. $8 million a year? Sather was crazy. Girardi $6 million…..crazy! Dan…its called a bodycheck, look it up.

    Rangers threw it all at theB’s in the 1st period. Rask stole this one for Boston.

    The six million dollar man is outta there! Last game as a ranger!

    That defense on Campbell’s goal looked exactly like my no-hit-no-back check pick up skate on Friday nights.

    They keep throwing shots at the net but keep missing and robbed. It’s got to their heads especially last two games. Frustrating how they keep outshooting teams but lose. It’s been that way all season
