Lundqvist was expected. And I would say the emergence of Stepan/Del Zotto, Richards play, and the improvement of Callahan outweigh the play of Girardi and McDonagh in terms of reasons why we have been so good. Just shown by Anton Stralman producing 20+ minutes a game a looking great. Not as hard to play defense when the forwards play defense too.
