New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist was inspired by Dominik Hasek when he was a young goalie growing up in Sweden. Now Lundqvist shares a place in the NHL record book with the Hall of Famer.

Lundqvist tied Hasek for the most wins by a European-born goalie in NHL history by making 29 saves in a 3-2 shootout win against the New Jersey Devils at Madison Square Garden on Sunday. They each have 389 wins.

"It's special to me," Lundqvist said. "He's a player that's been a lot of inspiration for me growing up. I had posters of him on the wall. I remember watching him, highlights, how he played. He was the first guy I saw play paddle down. I didn't grow up with that style. It was something I watched. I went to practice and said, 'I'm going to try that because I saw Dominik do it.'

"To be up there with him now, it's special for sure. I think he's up there with some of the best, with (Martin) Brodeur and (Patrick) Roy and him. The way they could dominate the game was fun to watch."
