completely under control
. So there isn't that lunging quality that you see/saw from Hasek or Ricky. The saves are just as good (in fact, better), but don't always have that wow factor. When Lundqvist gets the crowd going is when he faces like 5 shots in a row and answers every one. Bang, bang, bang, bang, bang.
I have stressed this ever since Henrik came over, this is what makes him so good and is why he will NOT go down the same road as the Jim Carey´s of the world.
