It is a classic match-up of the highest scoring team in the NHL, and one of the best goalies in the NHL. The Lightning were the No.1 offense in the regular season, averaging 3.2 goals per game.

The Lightning’s goals per game average has dropped a bit in the playoffs, but they are still a formidable offense to stop. Luckily for the Rangers, they have Henrik Lundqvist. In the second-round, Lundqvist was forced to play some of the best hockey of his career, as his team struggled to score.

In the playoffs, Lundqvist is 8-4 with a .944 save percentage, and a ridiculous 1.60 goals allowed per game average. It will not be an easy challenge for Lundqvist, but he is in the zone right now, and the Rangers will continue to need him to be.
