Rangers' Lundqvist Allows Four Goals In Loss

News: Henrik Lundqvist allowed four goals on 22 shots in Saturday's Game 2 loss to Pittsburgh.
Analysis: A rare off night for Henrik Lundqvist, who was beaten twice by Penguins' superstar captain Sidney Crosby. While it wasn't the best game for the King, it was just one game in a seven-game series. Lundqvist, who owns a career .922 save percentage in the playoffs, will continue to be the uncontested started for New York during their postseason run.

Rangers' Lundqvist To Start Saturday

News: Henrik Lundqvist will be between the pipes for Saturday's Game 2 against the Penguins, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist will look to build on his excellent Game 1 performance, in which he turned away 24 of 25 shots en route to a 2-1 win. Barring an injury, expect the Rangers to stick with Lundqvist throughout their playoff run.

Lundqvist, Rangers Hold Off Pens In Game 1

News: Henrik Lundqvist stopped 24 of 25 to take Game 1 from the Penguins on Thursday.
Analysis: The Rangers gave him two goals early, Henrik gave back one in the second period, and then it was all zeroes from there as the Penguins' late push fell short. The Rangers will surely be leaning on Henrik Lundqvist every game in the playoffs, so expect to see him out there for Game 2 on Saturday.

Rangers Roll With Lundqvist

News: Henrik Lundqvist is in line to start Thursday's game against the Penguins, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Assuming no injury setbacks, Henrik Lundqvist -- who closed out the regular season with wins in five of his last six starts -- appears on track to remain in the Rangers' net for the team's postseason run, backed up by the capable Cam Talbot.

Rangers' Lundqvist Wins Season Finale

News: Henrik Lundqvist stopped 22 of 24 shots sent his way in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Capitals.
Analysis: King Henrik finishes the regular season with five wins in his last six starts. He'll hit the reset button on his 30-13-3 record, .922 save percentage and 2.25 GAA when the Rangers open up their first round playoff matchup Wednesday or Thursday against the Penguins.

Rangers' Lundqvist Set To Get Nod Saturday

News: Henrik Lundqvist is in line to start Saturday's regular-season finale against the Capitals.
Analysis: Coach Alain Vigneault announced earlier in the week that Henrik Lundqvist would start the Rangers' final two games of the season, but that plan was thrown into a little bit of question temporarily during Thursday's game against the Senators, when Lundqvist was hurting a bit after a crease collision. Lundqvist would remain in the net for the duration of the loss and indicated he was fine afterward. He looks to be on his game as the playoffs approach, but with the Rangers likely to rest a few key players for Saturday's meaningless season finale, Lundqvist might not be as attractive of a daily option as he normally would.

Lundqvist, Rangers Lose Meaningless Game

News: Henrik Lundqvist stopped 24 of 26 in Thursday's loss to Ottawa.
Analysis: This was a meaningless game for the first-place Rangers, who rested several key players, but rolled Henrik Lundqvist out there, as they will in the season finale, to give him a bit more game action to be read for the playoffs after he missed a chunk of time with a neck injury.

Rangers Stick With Lundqvist Down The Stretch

News: Henrik Lundqvist is slated to start the Rangers' final two regular season contests, Thursday against Ottawa and Saturday against Washington.
Analysis: With the Rangers having clinched the NHL's top record, they plan to rest Rick Nash, Marc Staal and Mats Zuccarello on Thursday, but it looks like the team is intent on Henrik Lundqvist (who previously missed extended time with a neck injury) maintaining momentum in advance of the postseason. On Thursday, he'll be facing a Sens squad that is in must-win mode, with two games left on their regular season slate.

Rangers' Lundqvist Dispatches Blue Jackets

News: Henrik Lundqvist turned away 29 of 32 shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist looked like he might get tagged with the loss with the Rangers trailing in the final minute of the third period, but Derek Stepan scored with 28 seconds remaining and then potted the winner in overtime with 50 seconds left to steal the victory. The netminder has now won four straight starts, delivering save percentages above the .900 mark each time. He looks ready to roll for the playoffs.

Rangers' Lundqvist Starting Monday

News: Henrik Lundqvist will start Monday's game against the Blue Jackets, NorthJersey.com reports.
Analysis: After struggling in his first game back from the neck injury, Henrik Lundqvist has allowed just five goals over his subsequent three starts, picking up a trio of wins along the way. Cam Talbot will likely get the second game of a back-to-back Tuesday in New Jersey, but we should see Lundqvist in goal for Thursday's game against Ottawa and/or Saturday's game in Washington.

Rangers' Lundqvist: 35 Saves, Three Straight Wins

News: Henrik Lundqvist made 35 saves in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Devils.
Analysis: The rust is coming off for sure. He has won three straight and has allowed just five goals in three games. You know what to do.

Rangers To Start Lundqvist On Saturday

News: Henrik Lundqvist will be between the pipes for Saturday's game against the Devils, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist looked rusty in his return from a neck injury last weekend against the Bruins, but he's rebounded in his subsequent two turns, claiming wins over the Jets and Wild while surrendering two goals in both contests. He's won his two previous matchups against the Devils in convincing passion, so expect him to once again put the clamps on one of the NHL's lowest-scoring teams.

Lundqvist Looks Good Again As Rangers Win

News: Henrik Lundqvist stopped 26 of 28 shots Thursday in a 3-2 victory over Minnesota.
Analysis: Faced with the nigh-unbeatable Devan Dubnyk on the other end, Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers earned yet another note of credibility, with the Swedish netminder's big saves at the end of this game looming large. After looking shaky in his first start back from a neck injury, Lundqvist's rounded right back into midseason form.

Rangers Stick With Lundqvist On Thursday

News: Henrik Lundqvist is slated to start Thursday's game against the Wild, Pat Leonard of the NY Daily News reports.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist, who stopped 32 of 34 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Jets, will make his second straight start and third overall since returning from a seven-week absence due to a vascular issue with his neck. He'll square off against Devan Dubnyk and the red-hot Wild, who have won five straight games.

Rangers' Lundqvist Confirmed To Start

News: Coach Alain Vigneault confirmed Henrik Lundqvist would start Tuesday's game against the Jets.
Analysis: After a seven-week absence due to a vascular issue with his neck, Henrik Lundqvist was roughed up in his return to the net Saturday against the Bruins, conceding three early goals and ultimately taking the defeat. Some rustiness should probably be expected in Lundqvist's next couple of turns, but the Rangers believe he'll be sufficiently tuned up in time for the playoffs.

Sharp Lundqvist Helps Rangers Get By Winnipeg

News: Henrik Lundqvist stopped 32 of 34 shots Thursday in a 3-2 victory over the Jets.
Analysis: An early Winnipeg goal had the Rangers -- losers of consecutive games over the weekend -- back on their heels a bit early on, but Mats Zuccarello's first-period response helped get Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers going. The King was much sharper in this one than he was in his first game back from a neck injury, Saturday's loss to Boston. He's likely to stay in the net Thursday as the Blueshirts visit Minnesota.

Rangers Stick With Lundqvist

News: Henrik Lundqvist is in line to start Tuesday's game against the Jets, Pat Leonard of the NY Daily News reports.
Analysis: After allowing four goals in Saturday's loss to the Bruins, in his first game since Feb. 2, Henrik Lundqvist will look to bounce back Tuesday, with the Rangers having dropped two straight contests overall.

Rangers' Lundqvist: Rusty In Return

News: Henrik Lundqvist was rusty Saturday against the Bruins in his return from injury. He had missed seven weeks after taking a puck to the neck.
Analysis: He will rest Sunday and Cam Talbot will get the gig. It could take him several games to get his groove back, but he should be fine by playoff time.

Rangers' Lundqvist Making Return Saturday

News: Coach Alain Vigneault confirmed that Henrik Lundqvist would return to the net Saturday afternoon against the Bruins, Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.
Analysis: After he was activated from long-term injured reserve Wednesday, Henrik Lundqvist served as the backup goalie in his first game back Thursday against the Senators, but that was more of a measure to ease the netminder back into action after just under a two-month absence after taking a puck to the neck. With Vigneault quickly dismissing any goalie controversy by stating earlier this week that Lundqvist was still the team's No. 1 goaltender, expect the King to receive the lion's share of the starts in net the rest of the way as the Rangers look to chase down the Presidents' Trophy. Lundqvist owns a lofty 25-11-3 record to go along with a 2.20 GAA, .922 save percentage, and five shutouts over his 39 appearances this season.

Rangers Activate Lundqvist, To Back Up Thursday

News: Henrik Lundqvist (neck) was activated from long-term injured reserve Wednesday and will serve as the backup goalie for Thursday's game against the Senators, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Confirming what was apparent after backup goalie Mackenzie Skapski was demoted to AHL Hartford earlier in the day, coach Alain Vigneault said that Henrik Lundqvist is ready to go after being sidelined since Feb. 2 due to a vascular incident. The Rangers will ease him back in with reserve duty Thursday, but Vigneault reiterated that Lundqvist is still the team's franchise goaltender, even after Cam Talbot performed more than admirably in his stead. Assuming he doesn't see any relief duty Thursday, Lundqvist figures to make his return to the net Saturday in Boston or Sunday afternoon versus the Capitals, two teams that could both represent possible first-round playoff opponents for the Rangers.

Rangers' Lundqvist In Line To Dress Thursday

News: Henrik Lundqvist (neck) is in line to dress for Thursday's game against the Senators, likely as the backup to projected starter Cam Talbot, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist hasn't been formally activated from injured reserve just yet, but the team's demotion of Mackenzie Skapski to AHL Hartford makes it a foregone conclusion that the Rangers' top netminder is ready to play. The 33-year-old rejoined the team for a skate Tuesday morning, and looks to be a full participant in Wednesday's practice, suggesting the team is comfortable with where he is at on the health front. Lundqvist, who missed about seven weeks after suffering a "vascular incident" upon taking a puck to the throat in a Jan. 31 win over the Hurricanes, will be eased into action in the early going, but it shouldn't be long before he takes the reins atop the goalie depth chart, despite Cam Talbot's admirable play during Lundqvist's absence.

Rangers' Lundqvist Close To Return

News: Henrik Lundqvist (neck) indicated Tuesday that he expects to play this week.
Analysis: It remains to be seen if Henrik Lundqvist has any shot to play Thursday against the Sens, but the Rangers are playing back-to-back games Saturday (against the Bruins) and Sunday (against the Caps), so barring any setbacks, a return for one of those two contests would appear plausible.

Rangers' Lundqvist Continues To Progress

News: Henrik Lundqvist (neck) joined his teammates for Tuesday's morning skate, the Rangers' official site reports.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist -- who last suited up on Feb. 2 -- continues to progress, though at this stage a timetable for his return to game action has yet to be solidified, according to Andrew Gross of The Record. In Lundqvist's absence, the Rangers are 17-3-3, with Cam Talbot having earned the bulk of the team's starts during that span.

Rangers' Lundqvist (Neck/Personal) Away From Team

News: Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said he is unsure whether the birth of Henrik Lundqvist's child will affect the goaltender's timetable to return from a neck injury, Pat Leonard of the NY Daily News reports.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist's wife is expected to give birth Friday, but the netminder never figured to be ready this weekend. If anything, Lundqvist will just be delayed by a day or two, and he'll surely appreciate not having to deal with the pressure of rushing back to his team. He could be back as soon as next week, but Cam Talbot's excellent substitute work allows the Rangers to be cautious.

Rangers' Lundqvist A Week Or So Away From Return

News: Though Henrik Lundqvist (neck) has been cleared to practice, GM Glen Sather noted Wednesday that the goalie is a week to 10 days away from a return to action, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist hasn't played since Feb. 2 and with Cam Talbot filling in well for him, there's no compelling reason to rush Lundqvist back. Based on the timetable presented by Sather, Lundqvist should have an opportunity to see a decent amount of action for the Rangers down the stretch run, with an eye toward having the veteran goalkeeper sharp as the postseason approaches.
