Lundqvist Named Sunday's 1st Star

Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy named Henrik Lundqvist Sunday's first star...

No. 1 Star: Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers
King Henrik earned his 150th NHL victory and 21st career shutout in the Rangers' 1-0 victory over the Boston Bruins, stopping 29 shots. He turned aside 14 shots in the third period, including solid work during a four-minute penalty kill for the Rangers.

...last year Lundqvist was the story every game. I think this might be only the second time this season the Rangers relied on him to win. Which should help Lundqvist mentally as the season drags on.

Marian Gaborik was given an honorable mention for scoring the game's lone goal in his return from injury.
