“It’s heartbreak,” Lundqvist said, his face bright red and his eyes watery.
“I worked so hard for every game in these playoffs,” Lundqvist said. “I’ve never been so tired. I feel like I’ve done everything I could to try to help the team. It was not enough against (Los Angeles).”
After the game, it took Lundqvist roughly 45 minutes to compose himself and speak to the media. Even then, he didn’t want to take off his pads.
