Practice Report: Lundqvist Back On The Ice
After missing Tuesday night’s win while dealing with the flu, Henrik Lundqvist returned to the ice today ahead of the Rangers matchup with the Washington Capitals.

King Henrik has been key for the Rangers turnaround, going 6-0-2 and posting a 2.65 GAA since November 1. Especially with the Rangers facing divisional opponents over their next two contests, they will need King Henrik to be at his best.
Lundqvist said he felt “close” to 100 percent, and Vigneault said Lundqvist will get #NYR start tomorrow.
