Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist: Defending net Thursday in Montreal

Lundqvist will match up against Carey Price for Thursday night's Game 5 in Montreal.

Lundqvist faced his lowest number of shots thus far in the playoffs Tuesday, when he allowed just one goal on 24 shots, so it's nice to see the Rangers' defense start to step up after they were leaky in the series' first two contests. King Henrik allowed five goals on 22 shots in a disastrous outing in Montreal on Jan. 14, so we suppose there's some potential risk in starting him in a season that's had its ups and downs.
