With Game 7 coming on Wednesday, Lundqvist reasonably argued that it makes little sense to linger on the negatives from Tuesday, as the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
“I already started thinking about tomorrow,” Lundqvist said about being pulled before the third period of Game 6. “You don’t want to analyze this too much. There were a couple of tough plays. I think I made a bad read on the breakaway, but the other goals are what they are. I think they were a little hungrier.
“You can’t think too much about this game. They did pretty much everything better than us. Even goaltending. We all have to step up and play our best and try to beat this team.”
Both teams said all the right things about their mindset heading into Game 7. The Flyers spoke about maintaining their work from Game 6 while the Rangers emphasized embraced the energy of playing another deciding contest at Madison Square Garden. For the Blueshirts, it might be most important for Lundqvist to truly live up to those words and put tonight’s struggle behind him.
