Rangers top Red Wings 3-0 in Lundqvist’s 300th win

 

Henrik Lundqvist is caught up in a numbers game he is quite happy about. With each win, the Swedish goalie is rewriting the New York Rangers’ record book. Lundqvist earned his 300th NHL victory and 49th career shutout in the Rangers’ 3-0 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday. With his 30-save performance, he shut out the Red Wings for the second time this season and helped New York complete a three-game season sweep of its Original Six rival. Lundqvist is one win shy of tying Mike Richter’s franchise record. He caught Rangers great Ed Giacomin for the club mark in shutouts. “It’s a great feeling to be up there with those guys,” Lundqvist said after his fourth shutout this season. “This organization has been around for so long, so to be up there with them, it’s very special.” – Associated Press
