After meeting and indeed surpassing last season's publicly stated personal objective of 10 shutouts with a career-high and NHL-leading 11 whitewashes, Henrik Lundqvist will establish his personal objectives for 2011-12 after talking it over with assistant coach and goaltending instructor Benoit Allaire.

"I'll sit down with Benny before the season starts and do that," The King said yesterday after his second straight sharp scrimmage performance. "You want to have goals where you push yourself,but at the same time you want to have goals that you can achieve also.

"Last year was fun trying to reach something, but you don't want to put too much pressure on yourself."
