As the IIHF World Championships enter the quarterfinals tomorrow, four of the eight teams advancing to the quarterfinals have received an impact from New York Rangers players.
The players were late additions to their respective teams after the Rangers were eliminated from the NHL playoffs.
Henrik Lundqvist (Sweden), Brandon Dubinsky (USA), Michal Roszival (Czech Republic), and Fedor Tyutin (Russia), have all helped their teams get to the quarterfinals.
Lundqvist has been a standout for Sweden. In three games since joining Team Sweden, he is two and one, his only loss being a three to two heartbreaker against undefeated Russians, where he made 39 saves, with a 2.33 goals against average (GAA) and a .929 save percentage.
Sweden finished second in Group F, behind Tyutin's undefeated Russian squad, and will face Roszival's Czech Republic team tomorrow.
Dubinsky has helped the USA finish second in Group E. Centering the U.S.A.'s second line, Dubinsky scored his first three goals of the tournament in the last game the U.S.A. played, a nine to one spanking of Norway. The U.S.A. plays Finland in their quarterfinal match tomorrow.
