Henrik Lundqvist came into the Eastern Conference semifinals as the best goalie on the planet, according to many observers.

And after pitching back-to-back shutouts in Games 6 and 7 to lead the Rangers to victory over the Washington Capitals, he certainly arrived here as the hottest goalie.

But while he was very good last night — making 45 saves — he wasn’t perfect.

Lundqvist’s shutout streak was snapped after 152:23, when Zdeno Chara’s shot broke through him then he inadvertently knocked the puck into the net himself.

Next, he was beaten by rookie Torey Krug for the game-tying goal, a sizzling slapper from the left circle at 2:55 of the third period.

But Lundqvist was beating himself up over the goal that was probably the one most difficult to prevent, the 2-on-1 game-winner by Brad Marchand.

“I thought I made a bad decision,” said Lundqvist. “I mean it’s a tough play, but I could play it better. That was a tough overtime for us. We didn’t really get going, and they came out with a lot of energy and created a lot of chances. I thought we played a pretty good game. We did, but special teams were the difference, the one at 1-0 and then, I mean that’s going to be the case these playoffs.”

What could he have done differently?
