Lundqvist said, "interesting battle. A couple of guys that I played with for quite some time and I got to know them really well. They are doing well and playing with a lot of confidence."
Asked if it was going to be weird seeing Boyle and Callahan skating down on him, Lundqvist said "we will see but probably. You get used to it. You get to know a lot of players over the years and then they switch teams and then you face them in the next game. First time you see them out there in warmups it's maybe a different look but then you get used to them and then you prepare for the game but not during the game. It's more going into the game."
