Henrik Lundqvist made 23 saves, and stopped all 12 shots he faced over the final two periods, to earn the win. He appeared in his 120th career NHL playoff game in tonight's contest, passing Dominik Hasek and Tom Barrasso for sole possession of 10th place on the league's all-time playoff appearances list. Lundqvist has posted a 2-2 record, along with a 1.89 GAA, a .944 SV%, and 1 SO through the first four games of the series, and he leads the NHL in saves in the playoffs thus far this year (134). Lundqvist started his 119th consecutive playoff game in tonight's contest, and the streak dates back to Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against New Jersey in 2006. Lundqvist is one of three goaltenders in NHL history who have started at least 100 consecutive playoff games with one franchise (Martin Brodeur - New Jersey; Patrick Roy - Colorado).
