"King Henrik" Leadership On The Ice

@HLundqvist30 is the 1st goaltender in #NYR history to make 20,000 regular season and playoff saves combined.

While vacationing with my family in Florida over the Christmas Break we went to the Tampa vs. NY game on December 30, 2015.  Taking in the warm up it was no wonder why Henrik Lunqvist is regarded as best goaltender in the NHL.

The physical and mental discipline that it requires to be ready to play every day has earned him many distinctions. I recall my one day stint with the Detroit Red Wings in February 1986 and was taken back how the separates the professional athletes from the rest of us.
