Lundqvist allowed four goals on 30 shots in the Rangers 4-2 loss to the Capitals in his return from a neck injury on Saturday. Cam Talbot struggled on Sunday as well, so the Rangers will go back to King Henrik tonight in Winnipeg. Lundqvist has gone 11-5-1 with a 2.16 GAA and .925 SV% on the road this season.
Lundqvist was the first goalie off of the ice for the Rangers.
Lundqvist allowed four goals on 30 shots in the Rangers 4-2 loss to the Capitals in his return from a neck injury on Saturday. Cam Talbot struggled on Sunday as well, so it looks like the Rangers will go back to King Henrik tonight in Winnipeg. Lundqvist has gone 11-5-1 with a 2.16 GAA and .925 SV% on the road this season.
Summers has been recalled and he will make his Rangers debut on Sunday.
Summers has one assist in 10 games since being traded to the Rangers organization. He had three assists in 17 games with the Coyotes earlier this season. He will replace Matt Hunwick who is out with an upper-body injury.
Hunwick will be held out of the lineup on Sunday because of an upper-body injury that he suffered on Saturday. He will be replaced by Chris Summers, who was recalled from Hartford (AHL) this afternoon.
Talbot allowed one goal on 24 shots in the Rangers win in Ottawa on Thursday. He was given yesterday off, but he will be in goal today vs. the Capitals. Talbot has won three of his last four while posting a 2.23 GAA and .929 SV%. This afternoon he will make his 15th start at Madison Square Garden—Talbot has gone 9-2-3 with a 1.81 GAA and .939 SV% in his first 14 starts at home.
Lundqvist will return to the Rangers net on Saturday.
Lundqvist will start his first game since February 2nd. Lundqvist had a tough start to the season, but he has gone 16-5-0 in his last 21 starts. He comes into play with a 2.25 GAA and .922 SV% on the season and will take on a Bruins team who have dropped six straight games at the worst time of the season.
St. Louis (lower-body) is expected to skate on Thursday.
St. Louis has missed the last four games, but returned to the ice on Thursday. He was expected to miss 10-14 days and today marks the 10-day point. He is expected to be out until next week, which means he will miss three more games.
Talbot allowed four goals on 35 shots in the Rangers loss to the Kings on Tuesday. Talbot sits 7-2-1 with a 1.49 GAA and .953 SV% in his last 10 starts. Talbot is red-hot but he will need to be at his best tonight as the Rangers take on an equally hot Andrew Hammond and the Senators.
The Rangers have returned Mackenzie Skapski to Hartford (AHL).
Skapski, 20, went 1-0-1 with a 0.50 GAA and .978 SV% in two starts with the Rangers (both vs. BUF). He returns to the AHL where he has gone 12-7-3 with a 2.38 GAA and .914 SV% this season. His return to the minors suggests that Henrik Lundqvist will dress on Thursday.
Lundqvist (neck) is expected to dress on Thursday.
The Rangers sent Mackenzie Skapski back to Hartford (AHL) today, so Lundqvist will at least dress as Cam Talbot’s backup on Thursday. There is no word who their starter will be, but the way Talbot has played in his absence gives the Rangers a scary 1-2 punch in goal heading into the playoffs. Lundqvist has gone 25-11-3 with a 2.25 GAA, .922 SV% and five shutouts this season.
Lundqvist has been out since February 2nd, but was finally back at practice on Tuesday. Cam Talbot will start on Tuesday and it will be a “stretch” for Lundqvist to be ready for Thursday’s game in Ottawa. If he can’t play Thursday, King Henrik could be ready for the Rangers back-to-back on Saturday and Sunday.
