5. Henrik Lundqvist Is On A Mission

There is no understating the following idea: Henrik Lundqvist is an absolute madman right now. The 33-year old future Hall of Fame goaltender has not only played as his usually stellar-self, he’s surpassed it to a level we quite haven’t seen yet.

His stat line consists of seven wins, two losses, a 1.80 GAA, and an absurd .945 SV%. The seven wins and .945 SV% both currently lead the NHL.

He headed into the fresh campaign with new, lighter goalie pads. It’s seemed to work with flying colors thus far. Some of his early season saves have already entered the discussion as “save of the year.”

While the long 82-game regular season feels very irrelevant for the Rangers at times – as only the playoffs matter at this stage – it’s a very solid sign to see Lundqvist not losing any steam as he enters his mid-30s.
