Henrik Lundqvist Jersey Card

... And he's back.

After another one of his legendary slow starts, Henrik Lundqvist is back in form, finally over the .900 save percentage barrier, on the strength of a .941 showing and 1.62 GAA in his last three games, including a would-be lop-sided loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday night that he kept in the 2-1 margin; the Oilers completed the score with an empty-netter. He made 30 saves on 32 shots, a lot of them spectacular, such as this one:
The Rangers will need him playing like King Henrik if they want to make another post-season run, especially after losing out most of their bottom-6 forwards and defenseman Anton Stralman to free agency. I still stand by my pre-season prediction that despite injuries, they will hold on to a guaranteed playoff spot, but it won't look easy all the time.

Here's a miniature card of Lundqvist's, from Upper Deck's 2009-10 Champ's set (#MT-HL of the Threads jersey sub-set), featuring a tiny blue game-worn jersey swatch matching the Rangers' classic blue uniform from the black-and-white picture:
It's small, but the swatch is pretty much regular-size.
