Video: Lundqvist channels Hasek with spinning save

15 Comments

Compared to the Game 5 chaos of both conference finals, Game 6 of the Montreal Canadiens and New York Rangers has been decidedly normal. Thankfully, “normal” isn’t code for “boring.”

The Habs haven’t tested Henrik Lundqvist all that often through two periods, yet sometimes those rare chances can sometimes be an even bigger challenge. Alertness didn’t seem to be a problem for Lundqvist on this sprawling save, however:

Martin Biron has plenty of experience watching both Lundqvist and Dominik Hasek, so this comparison is even more fun:

The Rangers carry a 1-0 lead into the third period with the Habs facing a 20-minute stretch in which they must score at least one goal to keep their season going. Will Lundqvist be able to hold strong?
