The Prince Reigns Supreme

Henrik Lundqvist had 95 shots thrown at him, 36 were on net, and he stopped all 36, racking up a 2-0 shutout, as the Rangers posted another road win, upping their road record to 4-1-0. The Rangers would be wise to contact the Blackhawks to see if they could reschedule their Monday night home game to Chicago or maybe some neutral site. Maybe meet them halfway like Happy Valley, Pennsylvania, where Joe Paterno is celebrating his 399th win. Will this guy ever retire?

But I digress. Henrik Lundqvist's shutout was his 25th career shutout. With that shutout, Lundqvist passed one of my favorites, Chuck Rayner, and seems destined to challenge Eddie Giacomin's all time total of 49. He will make it, provided the Rangers give him some protection, and when all is said and done, Henrik Lundqvist will rank as one of the greatest goalies in the history of the New York Rangers, and also in the NHL.

The Rangers will go only as far as Lundqvist takes them and right now with this limited team it seems like a gargantuan task. However, if anyone can do it, the Swedish Prince can.

Long live the Swedish Prince, Henrik Lundqvist!
