Three Stars of the Weekend
Number three: Kevin Klein Two assists in Winnipeg on Friday gave him three points in three games. Klein is playing some of his best hockey for the Rangers, adding some offensive to his very strong, very consistent defensive game.
Number two: Henrik Lundqvist The King picked up career win number 301, tying him for the all-time franchise mark with Mike Richter. He'll have three cracks to break the record on the road this week.
What You Missed
Lundqvist isn't known for his aggressiveness (in fact, he's really known for the opposite), but that didn't stop him on this play from getting the job done.
