The New York Rangers lose to the Penguins, 5-4, in overtime despite Lundqvist’s 50 saves

March 6, 2010

On Thursday night, Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist’s career-high 50 saves weren’t enough to defeat the Penguins in the Rangers’ first home game since the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver. They fell to the Penguins, 5-4, on Evgeni Malkin’s overtime goal. Photos by Avi Gerver, ©Madison Square Garden, Inc.

This is me in between periods listening for the click of my in-goal camera to make sure it’s still firing:
