Henrik Lundqvist G NYR 21 hours ago
Lundqvist will be between the pipes for Saturday's Game 2 against the Penguins, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Lundqvist will look to build on his excellent Game 1 performance, in which he turned away 24 of 25 shots en route to a 2-1 win. Barring an injury, expect the Rangers to stick with Lundqvist throughout their playoff run.

Weber was forced from Friday's Game 2 against the Blackhawks with an undisclosed injury, Brooks Bratten of NHL.com reports.
At this point in time the severity of Weber's ailment remains unclear, as the team has yet to provide an update on his status. His availability for Game 3 of the Predator's playoff series with the Blackhawks will become clearer as soon as Nashville sheds some light on the nature of Weber's injury.
Derrick Pouliot D PIT 22 hours ago
Pouliot (upper body) participated in the Penguins' morning skate on Saturday, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
He's still questionable to play in Game 2, but the fact that he was able to hit the ice for the Penguin's morning skate on Saturday indicates that he may be healthy enough to rejoin Pittsburgh's lineup for the second game of their series with the Rangers. The team will provide an update on his status prior to puck drop on Saturday.
Christian Ehrhoff D PIT 22 hours ago
Ehrhoff (upper body) participated in the Penguins morning skate on Saturday, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Ehrhoff is still questionable to play in Game 2, but the fact that he was able to participate in the Penguin's morning skate indicates that he has a legitimate shot of returning to Pittsburgh's lineup on Saturday. The team will provide an update on his status prior to puck drop on Saturday.
Kevin Klein D NYR 22 hours ago
Klein (arm) participated in the Rangers' optional morning skate on Saturday, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Klein has already been ruled out of Saturday's Game 2. Head coach Alain Vigneault has stated that Klein will need to log at least one full practice before returning to game action, so the fact that he was able to return to the ice on Saturday, albeit in a limited fashion, is certainly promising in that regard. His next chance to play will come on Monday.
Jonas Hiller G CGY 22 hours ago
Hiller made 26 saves Friday but was pulled in the third period of a 4-1 loss in Game 2.
Hiller wasn't particularly on his game Friday, but there was an empty netter included in those four goals. Calgary was not shy about switching goalies throughout the season so if Hiller has another rough outing Sunday, Karri Ramo may get a shot in Game 4.
Ben Bishop G TB 22 hours ago
Bishop will be in the crease for Game 2 of the Bolts' playoff series against the Red Wings on Saturday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Bishop will look to bounce back from a poor performance in Game 1 in which he allowed three goals on 14 shots. Expect the Bolts to lean heavily on Bishop throughout their playoff run.
Jason Garrison D TB 22 hours ago
Garrison (upper body) will not play on Saturday in Game 2 against the Red Wings, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
As expected, Smith will not suit up for Game 2 against the Red Wings on Saturday. However, Garrison has indicated that he's close to returning, and hopes to return to the Bolts' lineup sometime next week. His next chance to play will come on Tuesday.
Karri Ramo G CGY 23 hours ago
Ramo made two saves in the last six minutes of Game 2 on Friday after relieving Jonas Hiller in a 4-1 loss to the Canucks.
The Flames went by committee for much of the season, so it's difficult to tell if that's a sign Ramo may get a shot in Game 3. Hiller did allow only four goals in the first two games, so odds are high that Hiller will get at least one more start, but he's going to be on a tight leash.
Matt Cooke LW MIN 1 day ago
Cooke (undisclosed) won't play in Game 2 of the first-round playoff matchup with St. Louis, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Cooke, who last played Feb. 1, was activated from injured reserve Tuesday and then had a setback unrelated his previous sports hernia injury. He may be healthy enough to play, but the Wild are going to use the same fourth line (Sean Bergenheim, Kyle Brodziak and Justin Fontaine) as Game 1.
