Goalie nods: Allen versus Lundqvist in battle of really high save percentages

4 Comments

Jake Allen‘s save percentage is .950, the highest in the NHL among regular starters.

Henrik Lundqvist‘s save percentage is .949, the second highest.

Tonight at MSG, those two goalies will face each other.

ONLY ONE WILL SURVIVE.

Wait, sorry, that’s not right. Both will survive. But only one will win. That’s what I meant to say.
