Last night was Henrik Lundqvist's 19th playoff game that saw him give up 4+ goals. Granted, 2 of those were 4-3 OTLs, but they count just the same. 7 of those 19 featured 5+ goals against. One of them was a 5-4 OTL. Prior to last night, Henrik Lundqvist had only ever given up 6 goals in the playoffs once.
It was way back in 2006, against the New Jersey Devils.
Prior to last night, only Wayne Simmonds had ever scored a playoff hat trick against Lundqvist.
Prior to last night, a Tampa Bay Lightning player had never before scored a playoff hat trick. And they've won the cup before!
All in all, an historic night.
What's on tap, y'all?
