Henrik Lundqvist sure knows how to win games. In 468 games in his career, Lundqvist has won 252 of them. That means he's won 53 percent of his games.
By contrast, Martin Brodeur has won 55 percent of his games. Patrick Roy has won 53 percent as well.
We assume that Brodeur and Roy are among the best ever to play the goaltender position. Lundqvist is right up there in this key stat.
Mike Richter, the Rangers' best goalie in history, has a winning percentage of 45.
Lundqvist has never had less than 30 wins in his career and has a career high of 39.
Wins are one way to measure goalies. Yes, it may be flawed; if a team scores five goals, it's going to be relatively easy to win that game.
Still, a good goalie should get around 30 wins, and King Henrik has never been under that threshold.
Wins may be an overrated stat, but consider this: The top 10 wins leaders feature seven current Hall of Famers, one future Hall of Famer in Brodeur and two potential Hall of Famers in Curtis Joseph and Chris Osgood.
Wins are important, and Lundqvist's career is shaping up to have a lot of them.
