Withe the Rangers and Capitals tied 2-2 with a minute to go in the second period Sunday night, Washington's Mike Ribeiro blasted a left wing shot up high that caught Henrik Lundqvist flush in his face mask. Lundqvist semed dazed as he lost his stick and then scrambled to try and block the Caps rebound attempt as the puck somehow stayed out of the Rangers cage.
"It was a hard shot and I kind of lost my balanace a little bit," explained Lundqvist after the game. "I was hoping for a whistle, but it didn't come. But I am fine."
