The Rangers were kind enough to send me a press release the other day, noting that they will be devoting all of the programming tomorrow to Henrik Lundqvist. Lundqvist, as you know, recently set the Rangers all-time wins record, passing Mike Richter with his 302nd win. Programming will begin at noon, and end just in time for the game against the Phoenix Coyotes. You can read the full release after the jump.
