The New York Rangers added to its win total on Saturday with a victory over the Colorado Avalanche, 4-2. The Rangers expanded its winning streak to five games — but more impressive was the milestone goalkeeper Henrik Lundqvist reached.

With the win, Lundqvist now has 400 for his career. He’s the 12 NHL goalie with at least 400 wins and the first European-born player to reach the mark. He’s also the third goalkeeper to record 400 wins with one franchise. Martin Brodeuer reached the mark with the New Jersey Devils and Tony Esposito accomplished the feat with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Lundqvist blocked 32 shots Saturday.
