Lundqvist: “We Needed This One”

Henrik Lundqvist’s first period was one for the ages. A handful of his 23 saves — the most he’s ever made in a single period — were highlight reel-worthy and he preserved the team’s lead through the opening 20 minutes.

After the game, Lundqvist spoke with MSG Network’s John Giannone about coming out of the first period with the lead, getting some puck luck, the team’s mindset heading into the third period, his play in the first period, his stop on Jamie Benn in the third period, the importance of the win and more.
