Every year, the New York Rangers are a dangerous team in the playoffs because of Henrik Lundqvist. One of this decades’s best goaltenders, The King always has the ability to steal a series by himself.
Just maybe not this year.
Thursday, Lundqvist gave up four goals on 18 shots against the Pittsburgh Penguins, forcing Alain Vigneault to pull him for Antti Raanta during a TV timeout in the second period.
He looked like he wanted to cry.
Naturally, the internet was mean.

Here are the four goals Lundqvist gave up.
After their 5-0 win, the second-seeded Penguins now lead the series 3-1. They’ll look to close it out Saturday in Pittsburgh.
