"NEW YORK. A wildly inspired Henrik Lundqvist refused to let him grid during Sunday's matinee in New York – despite as many as the fat chances."
"But nevertheless: William Karlsson has started to rev up again and plague the NHL målisar with almost the same frequency as during the previous year's unreal breakthrough."
"– It was a bit frustrating in the beginning of the season, when nothing went in. But I have had patience and now it feels like it is detached, " says ”Wild Bill” to Sportbladet after what eventually became a 4-3 victory."
"It was no Vegas-knight who had it particularly easy against Henrik Lundqvist – in femplus-form just in time for the home stretch towards the next week's break for the christmas holidays – in the early show at Madison Square Garden, but especially brutally robbed by Rangers-keepern was his countryman William Karlsson."
"He had an incredible double chance in the first period, a neutral position in the other, guides in the crease and shot from close range – but Lundqvist appeared to be just as obsessed with stopping the Jarrow-the sniper that some of the party is to stop the other from becoming the prime minister."
"– Yes, it was not a bit I missed, lapping ”Wild Bill” with a road huvudskakning when we meet him afterwards."
"– ”Henke” had apparently decided that I would not have to make any goals. He stood simply on the head and won the match in the match against me."
"There are, however, few other goal keepers in the world's best league as done at the end. After a somewhat sluggish start to the regular season, Vegas 25-year-old förstecenter begun to raise to the same heights as last year, when he shocked the world with 43 hits. Before matinén in Manhattan, he had made four goals in three matches and eight of the last ten."
"Mm," he continues, " it was a bit frustrating in the beginning of the season, when nothing went in. But I have had patience and now it feels like it is detached. I have been there a few and the confidence is growing."
"In the same way it is even with the Golden Knights as a team. They started the season limping, but recalls for each week that passes more and more of it verging on the unstoppable collective that made their way to the final in the summer."
"Against the Rangers, they could, for example, won with a five-to six-goal margin – but had to wait first until Alex Tuck could flick out a 4-3 win in overtime. "
"– Yes, I think we were the best team on the ice and should have been settled already in the second period. Not least I myself sat hung a couple of bags since then, " says ”Wild Bill”."
"But a världsmålvakt determined to deny its sylvasse compatriot, some of the targets happened to be standing in the way this time."
"do not Expect that it will happen very often in the future."
