Another crown for King Henrik.

With his 11th of 12 first-period stops against the St. Louis Blues on Thursday, Henrik Lundqvist passed Mike Richter for the New York Rangers' franchise record for most career saves.

The milestone adds one more Rangers record to the 33-year-old's resume, which already includes franchise highs in wins (368), shutouts (59), and games played (670) among goaltenders.

Since taking the team's starting goalie job at the start of the 2005-06 season, Lundqvist has been named to three All-Star games, won a Vezina Trophy in 2012, and was named the Rangers' MVP for seven consecutive seasons, ending in 2013.

The only trophy left for the Swede, and one Richter raised back in 1994, is a Stanley Cup. Lundqvist backstopped his team to a Finals appearance in 2014, but they lost in five games to the Los Angeles Kings.

The Rangers went on to win 2-1.
