JUST NU: Lundqvist mot final

Det är 4.45 kvar av den andra perioden. Thomas Vanek får till en backhand som seglar mot öppet mål.

Henrik Lundqvist släpper klubban.

Kastar upp stöten – i nåt slags gymnastiskt move. Och räddar. En makalös räddning.

Och bara nån minut senare skickar Dominic Moore in 1-0 för Rangers, resultatet efter två spelade perioder.

Nu luktar det final för New York.

Kommentarer om “JUST NU: Lundqvist mot final

  1. Growing up with both my parents from Sweden in the United States I was encouraged to play hockey. Eventually I became a goaltender and there were many idols in the crease that I looked up to. First, Rogie Vachon of the LA Kings, a French Canadian. Second, Pelle Lindberg, a saint that passed away too soon. Third and Fourth, Vladimir Trettiak and Ken Dryden, both greats in their own. Fifth and Sixth were Jim Craig (US olympic goalie, yes it was a big moment to celebrate a sport in the US so dominant in countries like Russia, Sweden, and Canada) and John Vanbiesrouck (unheralded Rangers goalie). And finally, Henrik. The epitome of a professional, unselfish, competitive and proud. He is in great company as I see it, especially in the role of a goaltender. I think he is a great sports and human role model for Sweden and the US fans love this type of athlete and when you hear ’henrik, henrik’, he is as much ours as yours. His nationality transcends all. Ohh, I want Henrik, the Rangers, the US and Swedish fans to win this!!!
