We all (well, most of us) knew Lundqvist would turn it around, he's too competitive (stubborn) and too skilled to refuse to have a bad season, regardless of what's in front. Hence no reason to be worried about him when he has bad stretches.
A big part of what has improved his play is, he seems to skate out to the far end of his crease far more often than before. Allaire and Hank has probably adjusted his "deep in net" strategy a little bit. What took them so long? And yeah, he is so focused out there, he makes a bomb defuser look sloppy.
That, and that he's sick and tired of losing. Lundqvist is one of the leaders on this team for sure. He was one of those who called for a player meeting after the Isles loss and he was apparently one of the most vocal speakers on that meeting.
The only trouble is the workload, but Lundqvist has repeatedly said in interviews that he's fine. He's fit enough to handle the workload physically, it's mentally that it's tough, especially if you're losing.
I absolutely agree--I've noticed that Lundqvist is playing a little further out. He's still very deep in the crease compared to most of the other goalies (watch Miller sometime--he plays really far out), but it definitely looks like he's made an adjustment.
And he will need a break soon--the schedule has been kind and obviously he's in great shape, but without an occasional game off, every goaltender begins to lose focus.
