Video: Lundqvist robs Gionta

May 25, 2014, 8:51 PM EDT

The New York Rangers carried much of the play in Game 3 but eventually lost to the Montreal Canadiens, yet it was difficult to beat Henrik Lundqvist up too much. Most of the goals he allowed lately have come on weird bounces.

When Lundqvist’s had a chance to make the save, he’s done it almost every time. That much seemed quite clear when he made this nice stop on Brian Gionta:

The Rangers head into the first period up 1-0, but the goalie on the other end is also difficult to lambaste. Dustin Tokarski probably didn’t have much of a chance on Carl Hagelin‘s shorthanded goal:

Then again, in big games like these, it might come down to Lundqvist or Tokarski making saves they aren’t supposed to.

    Gionta couldn’t score in a soccer net. He’s been terrible this and most of the games in the playoffs. Montreal played an absolutely bad 1st period, and NY played ok.

    Can’t see Montreal winning this one if they continue to play as bad as they have.

    Looks like Montreal should have spent the past two days practicing their power play instead of practicing their acting and embellishing. They’re really good at it; probably the favorite to win an Oscar. Wouldn’t be surprised if they all keep one of those Hollywood blood capsules in their cheeks. Pitiful.
