Rangers beat Flames 4-3 at the Garden. Everyone is happy. But they miss the point. Lundqvist allows 3 goals. So, the Rangers need 4 to win. THAT'S THE PROBLEM. Not good enough when they play top teams. Never will win the cup with Lundqvist in the nets.
Here he goes again. Allowed 3 goals on 16 shots vs Combus. Let me do the math. That is one goal 5.3 shots. Ok, maybe we will cut him slack on first due to a screen. But not second or third which were unobstructed. He consistenly misses high shot to the glove side. Pulled for Raanta. Too Late.
Minimum 2 goals a game. He has so many wins because the offense has been tremendous. when the offense does not score, its a loss. Look at the game stats, it tells you all you have to know. No Cup with the King in the nets.
Stop blaming the defense. The king shares in the blame. Let us congratulate Lundqvist. He is now 37th in the nhl in terms of save percentage. One out of every 10 shots against Lundqvist is a goal. Keep up the good work Henrik.
sorry. 4 goals was not enough for the Rangers to beat Montreal. They should start calling Lundqvist King Choke.
Reply-to:Are you kidding me. Look at his save percentage. He is ranked 25th in the nhl. Give the fans a break. He has 18 wins so far. What does that tell you? The Rangers offense saves from falling off the cliff. With him in the goal, the Rangers have to net 4 or more goals to insure a win.
Rangers, wake up, please wake up. Lundqvist comes during second period against Montreal winning 2 -1. Final score 5 - 4. RANGERS LOSE. He lets in 4 goals. Let me repeat. HE LETS IN 4 GOALS. When are the Rangers going to wake up. You will never win the cup with Lundqvist. BENCH HIM.

Can you believe the broadcasters of the rangers games? They constantly praise Lunqvist about all the wonderful saves he makes. He is so wonderful when he lets in 3 or more goals. Imagine if they were ever unbiased and called him out on his lousy performance in goal.
Rangers need to get real. The Coach needs to wake up. BENCH HIM. 3 goals already in first two periods against Toronto. All three goals unobstructed, right through his legs. Face the facts. He is no longer a top flight goalie. It was the rangers offense that kept him from losing more games.
He may be a top flight goalie, but he has a number of weaknesses that are evident. Smart forwards will exploit these weaknesses. Coaches need to work with him on several aspects of his game 1. High shots to the glove side. 2. Handling the puck. 3. Staying too far back in the net.
Inconsistent play. Up one game and down the next. That is not going to be good enough to win NY a Stanley Cup. Makes some good saves and then lets in an unobstructed shot on net. GAA is down the list. Not the stats you want from your number one keeper.
