Lundqvist stopped 23 of 25 shots in Friday's Game 7 loss to the Lightning.

A tough end to the season for Lundqvist, who got zero goal support in the loss. The 33-year-old finishes the postseason 11-8-1 with a .928 save percentage and 2.11 GAA. While he's still searching for his first Stanley Cup, the King is a world-class goaltender who put on another spectacular showing in the 2015 postseason. Look for him to be a top fantasy pick once again in 2015-16.

Lundqvist will be in net for Friday's Game 7 against the Lightning.

With the exception of Games 2 and 3, in which he surrendered a total of 12 goals, Lundqvist has been solid against Tampa Bay throughout the Eastern Conference Final. If his teammates are able to carry the offensive momentum they gained after tallying five goals in Game 6 into Game 7, another solid outing from Lundqvist could be enough to propel the Rangers to the Stanley Cup Final.

Lundqvist turned away 36 of 39 shots in Tuesday's Game 6 win over the Lightning.

Lundqvist's huge saves in the first two periods helped the Rangers hold a small lead 'til the third, when their offense exploded for five goals. He only gave up Tampa's second and third tallies when the Rangers had 5-1 and 6-2 leads. Now Henrik and the Blueshirts will head back to Madison Square Garden, where they'll host the Lightning in Friday's Game 7.

Lundqvist will be between the pipes for Tuesday's Game 6 against the Lightning, Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.

Historically, Lundqvist has been at his best with his back against the wall -- he owns a 1.39 GAA and .956 save percentage in 17 career playoff elimination games. He's been solid in the net in the past two games versus the Bolts, but will need his mates to offer a little more goal support Tuesday to send the series back to Madison Square Garden.

Lundqvist stopped 20 of 22 shots in Sunday's Game 5 loss to the Lightning.

While the King turned in a decent performance, his opponent Ben Bishop was sensational, stopping all 26 shots he faced. Lundqvist has now lost three of his last four games, with the Rangers now on the brink of elimination. The 33-year-old has been phenomenal in elimination games in the past, so he'll need to show more of the same magic if the Rangers hope to force a Game 7 Tuesday against the Lightning in Game 6.

Lundqvist led the Rangers onto the ice for warmups before Sunday's Game 5 against the Lightning, ESPN Boston's Joe McDonald reports.

As expected, it will be Lundqvist vs. Ben Bishop for Game 5 at MSG as both teams look to grab a 3-2 advantage in the series. Lundqvist was named first star of Game 4, after stopping 38-of-39 shots in a 5-1 victory.

Lundqvist was named Game 4's first star Friday after turning aside 38 of 39 shots in a 5-1 win over Tampa Bay.

This one was much closer than it looked on the scoreboard most of the way, but Lundqvist was able to bounce back from consecutive six-goal disasters to shut down the Tampa Bay offense -- most critically in the second period, when the Bolts fired 19 shots on goal to the Rangers' six. Lundqvist's huge saves in that period kept the Lightning from turning the tide of the game after their first (and only) goal, and then the Rangers' offense went to work. Henrik and the Rangers will be back in action Sunday for Game 5 at Madison Square Garden.

Lundqvist stopped 34 of the 40 shots he faced in Wednesday's 6-5 OT loss to the Lightning.

King Henrik was stellar in the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Capitals, but has now allowed six goals in consecutive games to Tampa Bay. To make matters worse, Nikita Kucherov's OT winner was a pretty soft goal that Lundqvist should have stopped. He'll have to improve in Game 4 if the Rangers want to come back in the series.

Lundqvist will draw the start for Game 3 on Wednesday against Tampa Bay.

The Rangers will turn to Lundqvist again Wednesday despite Monday's rough outing where he allowed six goals on 26 shots. He'll look to regain his form from Game 1 where he stonewalled the Lightning en route to a 2-1 victory.
