In last nights New York Rangers’ Colorado Avalanche game, New York Rangers’ legendary goalie Henrik Lundqvist recorded his 400th win. On a cold night at Madison Square Garden on the 11th of February, Henrik Lundqvist became only the 12th goalie in NHL history to reach the 400 win mark. Sitting right behind the net, it was an amazing experience to watch one of the greatest goalies of all time play at a level few NHL goalies ever achieve. It was a sold out New York Rangers crowd that was loud, rowdy and full of Broadway cheer. There was no better place to be in New York City than Madison Square Garden on a Saturday Night with the Rangers in town.
Henrik Lundqvist’s 400th win also marked the New York Rangers 5th win in a row. The New York Rangers scored first in period one when New York Ranger Kevin Klein scored after winning a face off. After the Colorado Avalanche scored two goals to take the lead, once again New York Ranger’s Kevin Klein scored again to tie the score. In the third period, with the danger of an overtime looming, the New York Rangers went ahead on a Rick Nash goal form the slot to giver the New York Rangers a 3 to 2 lead. After the Colorado Avalanche pulled the goalie with almost two minutes left to play, the New York Rangers Hayes scored an empty netter to put the game on ice and secure the milestone 400th win for Henrik Lundqvist.
Henrik Lundqvist’s first win of his career came on Oct. 13, 2005 against the New Jersey Devils. The night marked Henrik Lundqvist’s 11 the straight start and fourth straight win in a row. New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault seemed to paying high respects to Henrik Lundqvist in order to give the goalie the opportunity to record his 400th win home at New York’s Madison Square Garden. I can tell you this personally, the crowd really appreciated it. IT WAS LOUD!!
