“The past is the past. I don’t think about what happened last year or whatever. It’s different teams. I’m going to approach it the same way I approached this one, not overthink it or try to do too much. Their top guys are really talented and can make some big plays out of nothing, so we have to be ready.”—Henrik Lundqvist
“The whole series was just a big war, and it was going back and forth, and it was good hockey and intense. It was fun. As the clock winds down, you have to let it out, so I probably screamed a little there at the end, just to enjoy the moment!”—Henrik Lundqvist
“We have to use the energy that’s in the building, and hope they (the fans) can be a difference. We just have to focus on things we can control. Of course there is more pressure, but you just can’t overthink things.”—Henrik Lundqvist on tonight’s Game 7.
“It’s a great feeling, and I’m really proud and honored to be with those names. It’s been a year where a lot of goalies have been playing really well, so to be up there is really a great feeling. Obviously I take a lot of pride in that. I think all of my teammates here should feel good about it because this is all about teamwork. I had a good year, but without them I couldn’t have done this.”—Henrik Lundqvist on his Vezina Trophy nomination.
“It’s an absolute joke. Oh my god, it scares me. It’s such an obvious play, goalie interference, and a kick. And they still call it a goal? That scares me, that someone can call that. It still upsets me. Someone wants them back in the game obviously. There’s no other explanation.”—Henrik Lundqvist
