ST. LOUIS -- Henrik Lundqvist became the New York Rangers' all-time saves leader and first goalie in NHL history to record 30 wins in 10 of his first 11 seasons, and Chris Kreider scored the tie-breaking goal in the third period of a 2-1 victory against the St. Louis Blues at Scottrade Center on Thursday.

Lundqvist made 35 saves to give him 17,404, surpassing Mike Richter (17,379). Lundqvist also moved into third place in NHL history for seasons with 30-or-more wins with his 10th after defeating the Blues. Lundqvist also tied Tom Barrasso for 16th place with his 369th victory.

"You know the names I'm up there with and obviously it's a huge honor," Lundqvist said. "Growing up, those guys were guys I was watching and now I'm up there with wins. To me, it's just a sign of I've been given a chance for a lot of years. This organization, when I came, I've been lucky to play with a lot of good players and been able to have a competitive team every year. I'm really happy about that."
