LOS ANGELES -- The picture of the New York Rangers' devastation Saturday night sat in the first stall to the right of the entrance into the visitor's dressing room at Staples Center.
There sat goalie Henrik Lundqvist, his head buried underneath his hands, looking inconsolable as the media walked into the room looking for answers as to how and why the Rangers coughed up another two-goal lead in the Stanley Cup Final only to lose in overtime again, this time 5-4 in double overtime to the Los Angeles Kings in Game 2.
Lundqvist, his equipment off at this point, had to gather himself and his thoughts before opening himself up to the interrogators in the room. It's impossible to imagine how difficult this was for him, especially because he was as frustrated as he was devastated at how it unfolded.
One of the goals scored, Lundqvist said, should not have been a goal. It angered him deeply.
"I'm extremely disappointed on that call, or non-call," Lundqvist said. "They got to be consistent with that rule."
