30 Days of Lundqvist: The 2012 Vezina Season

The 2011-12 season was quite an interesting one for the New York Rangers, and a memorable one for Henrik Lundqvist. The Blueshirts finished with an Eastern Conference best record of 51-24-7 with 109 points, two points behind the Alain Vigneault-coached Vancouver Canucks. The Rangers advanced to the Eastern Conference Final for the first time since the 1996 season, but were dispatched by the New Jersey Devils.

Before delving into the awesome season Lundqvist had, here is some context to set the scene.

The Rangers had some talented players on the roster, but it also featured names such as Mike Rupp, Johnny “Malkin” Mitchell, Steve Eminger, Jeff Woywitka, Andre Deveaux and John Scott.
