Last night, Henrik Lundqvist achieved something spectacular. He earned his 30th win of the season, for the third straight year.
What this means is the following:
In each of Henrik Lundqvist's first three NHL seasons, he has at least 30 wins. This has not been done since Garden favorite Ron Hextall (37 wins in 86/87, 30 wins in 87/88, and 30 wins in 88/89).
To Hextall's credit, he also had a 30 win season his fourth year.. so Henrik will be going for that record next season, I'm sure.
Henrik is close to his 100th career win, as he hit 97 last night. His career stats are as follows:
97-55-24 (15 Shutouts)
Do not fear, fellow Ranger fans. We have the King for another 6 years!
