2.) Save on Shea Weber in Game One Against Montreal
Game One of the Stanley Cup Playoffs saw the Rangers start out on the right foot. This, of course, wasn’t an easy task against a team they have an abundance of history with. However, the spectacular play of Lundqvist in this game was the difference, as the Rangers shut out the Canadiens 2-0 at the Bell Centre.
At 4:26 of the first period in Montreal, the Rangers were killing a penalty, and Lundqvist came up big with a tremendous save on Shea Weber that stunned the crowd to keep Game One scoreless. He caught the puck in his arm after a swooping motion to keep it from going past him. Check out 2:32 of the video to take a look.
Lundqvist was the story in this game because he came up with the right save at the right time. Had he not, who is to say that game and that series wouldn’t have gone differently?
