Rangers' Lundqvist: Struggles in 2nd half 'more challenging'

Henrik Lundqvist liked how he started the season. The 37-year-old New York Rangers goalie wasn't so pleased with how he played toward the end.

He was 15-12-7 with a 3.19 goals-against average during the first half while earning his fifth All-Star appearance. After that, however, he had just three wins in 17 starts to finish with fewer than 24 wins for the first time in his career.

"It was more challenging than I expected it to be and that's something I have to learn from obviously," Lundqvist said Sunday at the team's practice facility in Greenburgh, New York. "There were so many games I felt good, but where we are right now, good is not going to be enough. You need to play great to win."
