The Rangers defeated the Flyers 5-1. With the victory Lundqvist recirded his 424th NHL win and passed Tony Espoito by moving into 8th place all time.

Henrik Lundqvist has achieved a feat no other goalie before him ever has.

With a near-perfect performance on Tuesday night, turning away 25 of 26 shots thrown his way by the Philadelphia Flyers, the New York Rangers netminder became the first goalie in league history to record 20 wins in 13 consecutive seasons, according to NHL Public Relations.
