“In the second, Matt Puempel zipped the puck past Zatkoff for his sixth goal. He had missed the previous eight games because of concussion symptoms. After a three-save flurry from Lundqvist, including one minus his stick, Nolan scored on a rebound at 18:01, but the Rangers survived the 40 minutes with a 2-1 lead.”

“After allowing 16 goals on 76 shots in three games out of the bye week, Lundqvist has stopped 80 of 84 in backstopping the Blueshirts (31-16-1) to three straight wins. Fittingly against Los Angeles, Lundqvist looked every bit like the King.”

“There was also the stop of Clifford late in the second, and the stop of Anze Kopitar late in third — all of them, world class, and much needed for both Lundqvist and the team as they try to keep pace in the cutthroat Metropolitan Division.”
