On Saturday, March 14th we chronicled the timeline of Lundqvist’s injury and updates. Upon reviewing all information available from sources like Lundqvist himself, TSN’s Bob McKenzie and the increasing intensity of his on-ice workouts, we targeted the game against L.A. as a likely return.
If that is the case, it would allow Henrik 11 games to knock off any rust and be ready for the playoffs. Expect more clarification to come from the Rangers themselves in the next few days.
