Things just aren’t going the Rangers way Thursday, especially for Hernik Lundqvist.
King Henrik was issued a two-minute delay of game penalty for something that you don’t see every day—a goalie knocking off a net.
Lundqvist didn’t just knock it off, he toppled it.
With about six minutes into the second period, Lundqvist became agitated that play wasn’t stopped after a fellow teammate crashed into him on try to defend a Penguins scoring attempt. The goalie was obviously shaken by the hit, as it appeared he wanted the official to stop play, but didn’t.
So Lundqvist took matters into his own hands by flipping the net.
Even the Penguins took notice of Henrik’s rage.
Later in the second period, the Penguins scored three unanswered goals thanks to Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Patric Hornqvist.
Lundqvist did not start the third period and received treatment for neck spasms after the collision.
Pittsburgh defeated New York 4–1.
