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.

Rangers' Lundqvist Cleared To Resume Practicing

News: Henrik Lundqvist (neck) was cleared to resume practicing Tuesday following a check-in with specialists.
Analysis: Coach Alain Vigneault said that once Henrik Lundqvist was cleared, he'll only need a couple of practices before returning from injured reserve. However, due to the Rangers' schedule, Lundqvist won't have an opportunity to practice until Friday, according to the Bergen Record's Andrew Gross. As a result, it's looking dicey that he'll be able to return for either of the Rangers' games Saturday or Sunday, with an activation early next week a more likely scenario. The Rangers have managed just fine in their star netminder's absence, going 15-4-1 behind Cam Talbot and Mackenzie Skapski to climb into first place in the Eastern Conference.

Workouts Intensifying For Rangers' Lundqvist

News: Coach Alain Vigneault said Friday that Henrik Lundqvist (neck) has begun to intensify his workouts, but the team is still without a timetable for the goalie's return, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist seems to be feeling good when he's been on the ice, but is still awaiting clearance from doctors to resume playing again. Coach Alain Vigneault indicated that Lundqvist would likely be able to play shortly after he gets cleared, so it doesn't appear that the Rangers are considering any sort of conditioning assignment before activating him.

Rangers' Lundqvist Skates Monday

News: Henrik Lundqvist (neck) skated again Monday, but will not travel with the team for their next three contests, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist appears to be progressing well, but there is still no timetable for an exact return date. Given that he's not traveling with the team, the earliest he could return is Sunday's game against the Panthers. Lundqvist will likely need to practice with the team before he's activated though, so he could be sidelined for at least another week.

Rangers' Lundqvist Progressing, But Remains Out

News: Henrik Lundqvist is making good progress in his recovery from a vascular injury, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist received a favorable prognosis when he was checked out by a doctor last week, and he has been able to take the ice and participate in individual drills over the last 7-to-10 days. While he is moving in the right direction, he is still not practicing with the rest of the team, so a definitive timetable for his return remains uncertain.

Rangers' Lundqvist (Neck) Skates Again Sunday

News: Henrik Lundqvist (neck) skated again Sunday, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist still likely remains a ways off from returning, but he has been able to stay in relatively good shape by getting in some work every once in a while. His return is expected to come closer to early-March at best, but his timetable will be updated when more information becomes available.

Rangers' Lundqvist Gets On Ice Wednesday

News: Henrik Lundqvist was on the ice Wednesday for the first time since being placed on injured reserve last week, Sean Hartnett of WFAN Sports Radio reports.
Analysis: Coach Alain Vigneault said that Henrik Lundqvist still remained under the protocol recommended for the "vascular incident" that resulted in him being shut down earlier this month. His presence on the ice Wednesday might have just been out of an effort to stay conditioned, so there's no indication that he'll return to practice in the near future. Lundqvist is still probably looking at an early-March return date, at best.

Rangers' Lundqvist Resumes Cardio Work

News: Henrik Lundqvist (neck) has been able to ride a stationary bike the last few days in an effort to stay conditioned, the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist hasn't resumed skating yet, however, which means he's probably still a couple weeks away from playing again. The Rangers ruled him out last Friday for a minimum of three weeks due to his "vascular incident," but his absence could easily extend beyond that.

Rangers Place Lundqvist On IR

News: Henrik Lundqvist (neck) has officially been placed on injured reserve by the Rangers, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
Analysis: With Henrik Lundqvist out for a minimum of three weeks, Cam Talbot will fill in for the Rangers, with Mackenzie Skapski on hand to serve in a backup capacity.

Rangers Put Timetable At Three Weeks For Lundqvist

News: The Rangers confirmed Friday that Henrik Lundqvist (neck) is dealing with a "vascular incident" stemming from the puck to the throat he took last week, Mike Brehm of USA Today reports. The team expects him to miss at least three weeks.
Analysis: An earlier report from the New York Post suggested Henrik Lundqvist would miss more than a month due to the injury, so while the latest update indicates a little more optimism, the netminder is still looking at a lengthy absence. Cam Talbot is slated to serve as the Rangers' go-to goalie with Lundqvist out of commission for a bit, while the newly recalled Mackenzie Skapski slots in as the new backup. The organization plans to consult with medical experts on Lundqvist's unique situation, with a reevaluation of his condition likely to come forth in the next week or two.

Rangers Not Commenting On Lundqvist Reports

News: Coach Alain Vigneault declined to confirm reports earlier Friday suggesting Henrik Lundqvist (neck) would be sidelined for at least a month, Andrew Gross of The Record reports. Vigneault would only acknowledge that Lundqvist would not travel with the team to Nashville for Saturday's game.
Analysis: It's likely just the case where Vigneault and the Rangers don't want to speculate on an estimated return timetable for Henrik Lundqvist until more information on his condition becomes available, but fantasy owners need not be as prudent. Even if the goaltender's absence isn't quite as lengthy as reported, it's apparent that he's looking at more than a day-to-day window for his return. Those who have relied on Lundqvist as their top fantasy option in net may need to look no further than his backup for stability in goal, as Cam Talbot has been outstanding over the last two seasons, despite being used only sparingly. Talbot should be primed for a heavy workload if Lundqvist indeed misses significant time.

Rangers' Lundqvist (Neck) Out For A Month

News: Henrik Lundqvist (neck) will be out for at least one month, the New York Post reports.
Analysis: Initially considered day-to-day, Henrik Lundqvist is now expected to be out until at least early March. The exact nature of his injury hasn't been revealed, but it's seemingly related to Lundqvist taking a shot off the throat during Saturday's game against Carolina. He played Monday's game against the Panthers, but he has since been bothered by intermittent headaches. Cam Talbot will serve as the Blueshirts' top goaltender for at least the next few weeks, with MacKenzie Skapski currently positioned as the top backup. Given that Skapski is just 20 years old, New York may be in the market for a more experienced backup.

Rangers' Lundqvist (Neck) Misses Practice Friday

News: Henrik Lundqvist (neck) is not practicing Friday, Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist is considered day-to-day, and he may not travel with the Rangers for Saturday's game in Nashville. With New York also scheduled to face the Stars on Sunday, Cam Talbot may end up starting one or two games this weekend.

Rangers' Lundqvist Could Miss Further Action

News: Henrik Lundqvist (neck) may not accompany the Rangers for the team's next game Saturday against the Predators, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist remains day-to-day with his neck injury, but head coach Alain Vigneault acknowledged that he may not be healthy enough to play in the Rangers' next game. If Lundqvist does indeed sit out, Cam Talbot -- who picked up the win Wednesday -- would get another start in his place.

Rangers' Lundqvist Labeled As Day-To-Day

News: The Rangers are labeling Henrik Lundqvist as day-to-day with a neck injury.
Analysis: Henrik Lundqvist first suffered the injury after taking a puck to throat during last Saturday's win over the Hurricanes. He ended up playing Monday against the Panthers, stopping 33 of 36 shots in the victory, but appears to be dealing with some late-arriving soreness with his neck. More information on his condition should be provided again in the coming days, but his status looks to be in question for the Rangers' back-to-back weekend set.

Rangers Scratch Lundqvist For Wednesday's Game

News: Coach Alain Vigneault said Henrik Lundqvist is nursing an injury related to his throat and won't be available for Wednesday's game against the Bruins, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Vigneault had said a day earlier that Henrik Lundqvist would make the start, but it appears that an injury turned up after he was evaluated by the team's medical staff. The Rangers will continue to investigate Lundqvist's condition in order to determine the extent of the injury, but he'll retain a day-to-day label for now. Look for Cam Talbot to make the start in goal Wednesday versus the Bruins.

Rangers' Lundqvist To Start Wednesday

News: Henrik Lundqvist will start Wednesday's game against the Bruins, Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.
Analysis: The start will be Henrik Lundqvist's eighth in a row, and there was never really any question that he'd be handling this one. With the Rangers facing a back-to-back Saturday and Sunday, Lundqvist will likely start just one of the two games.

Rangers' Lundqvist Stops 33 In Win

News: Henrik Lundqvist made 33 saves on 36 shots in Monday's 6-3 win over the Panthers.
Analysis: Two days after a scare when he took a puck to the throat, Henrik Lundqvist was back in action with another impressive performance to gather win number 25 of the season. The King is once again an elite option in net for fantasy owners, and boasts impressive numbers with a 2.25 GAA and .922 save percentage.
