It’s been a great All-Star Weekend for New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist who put forth a shutout in the championship game.

Henrik Lundqvist just showed all of the NHL how he still has something left to give at 36-years-old.

Representing the New York Rangers in his fifth career NHL All-Star appearance, Lundqvist ended his weekend with a six-save shutout in the first half of the Metropolitan Division’s championship matchup against the Central Division.

Lundqvist allowed just two goals on 13 shots, all in the Metropolitan Division’s first game against the Atlantic Division.


Of the six saves Lundqvist made in the championship game, none was better than the Avs robbery. Mikko Rantanen of the Colorado Avalanche found Gabriel Landeskog for what looked like a sure goal, but Lundqvist was able to stick out the right pad and make the remarkable save.

If the new format of the All-Star Game has shown anything since it’s inception, it is that the format is not going to be a kind one for whoever is in between the pipes. Look no further than the first game of the night when Anaheim Ducks’ goalie John Gibson allowed seven goals on just nine shots making what Henrik was able to do even more remarkable.

All of this came a night after Lundqvist made 12 straight saves, winning the save streak on Friday. He has done a remarkable job representing the Rangers in San Jose and has shown that his statistics do not represent the type of season he has had for the Rangers.

The Metropolitan Division would go onto win the championship game 10-5, taking the $1,000,000 prize. For Lundqvist though, it only showed that he’s not going anywhere anytime soon and rightfully so.

Lundqvist and the Rangers don’t return to the ice until Tuesday when they take on Philadelphia Flyers at the Garden.
