Henrik Lundqvist out 2-3 weeksMarch 11, 2017, by
The injury list keeps growing. All-World goalie Henrik Lundqvist will be out 2-3 weeks with a lower body injury. This is the same injury that kept him out of Thursday’s loss to Carolina. Lundqvist, while not having the best season, was returning to form over the last two months and seemed to be ready for another playoff run.
Luckily for the Rangers, Antti Raanta has had a stellar season. He will be the starter while Lundqvist is out. The schedule does not favor the Rangers though, as there are four back-to-backs coming up. It’s assumed that Magnus Hellberg will be recalled to be the backup during this time. He may even get a game or two. Update: He’s been recalled on an emergency basis.
Not the best time for the Rangers injury list to grow, but at least they have a competent backup. And at least it’s not April."Henrik Lundqvist out 2-3 weeks",
