Lundqvist Loses Cool In Loss [VIDEO]
New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist has been known as a pretty even keeled player over his NHL tenure. He rarely, if at all, acts out, so what happened on Thursday night was rather shocking to everyone who follows the NHL.
In the 4-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Lundqvist lost his cool. In the second period after a collision with teammate Ryan McDonagh, Lundqvist picked up his own net and threw it off the moorings and into the end boards. It caused a stoppage of play and Lundqvist was given a penalty for the delay of game.
Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault sounded off on his net-minders antics after the game.
"I think he was trying to tell the referee he was hurt and I don't know if the signals didn't cross or whatever, but obviously the referee didn't pick up on it and he wasn't feeling right,'' Vigneault said.
