I'll attribute that to Lundqvist playing lights out against an aging goalie. " Hissy fits"? Can you elaborate? You mean how he thinks he could have made saves, and doesn't want to give credit to the shooter? What does that have to do with mental toughness.
I don't want to bring it up, because its an annoying thing when other team's fanbases do it me... but the guy has 3 cups. He's got to have some mental stability. His skills might not be what they once were, but this guy was tough to beat mentally and physically for years. Avery wasn't the only good to try and mess with him, in his career.
C'mon...he went freakin' ape* after the Carolina thing. smashed his stick on the boards, raced to the refs and screamed, etc.
I'm not going to say the guy isn't generally calm, but he has his moments. I'm simply saying it's not fair to act like he doesn't let ANYTHING bother him. And sometimes in our building, when the MAAAAAARRRTTYYYYYY chants get going after he lets in a goal, he does seem to let it under his skin, evidenced by quick goals following the first one.
