Henrik Lundqvist G NYR 46 Mins

Lundqvist will be in goal for Saturday's game against the Hurricanes, Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.

The King has taken losses in two straight starts, but he certainly deserved a better fate in the latter outing, as he shut out the Canadiens for the game's first 55 minutes. He shouldn't have too much trouble containing the Hurricanes, a squad that ranks in the bottom-third of the league in both goals and shot attempts per game.

Lundqvist matched zeroes with Montreal's Carey Price deep into the third period Thursday, but surrendered the only goal of the game to Max Pacioretty with 4:17 remaining. He made 25 saves.

Unfortunately for Lundqvist, the Rangers' offense has been predictable and distinctly stoppable over the last two games, as they've wasted a pair of terrific performances in a row from their star netminder. This is the first time Lundqvist's lost consecutive games in regulation since Oct. 12 and 14 -- the second and third games of the season.

Lundqvist will start in net against the Canadiens on Thursday, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.

Lundqvist allowed four goals against their New York City rivals in the Islanders, stopping 34 of the 38 shots he faced overall. He will look for his first win of the second half Thursday against a Canadiens squad scoring just 2.63 goals per game on the season.

Lundqvist stopped 34 of 38 in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Islanders.

Not a pretty stat line for Henrik, but he can hardly be blamed for this one, as the Rangers hung him out to dry repeatedly. He made a number of spectacular saves, but ultimately couldn't stop all the Isles' great chances; meanwhile, Jaroslav Halak was dominant on the other side. He'll surely be back out there Thursday against Montreal.

Lundqvist will start Tuesday's game against the Islanders, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Lundqvist finished the season's first half on a strong note, with seven wins in his final eight starts. He's allowed just 11 goals in seven January appearances, giving him a .950 save percentage for the month. His season-long numbers are just as good as expected, but he will have to deal with a tough matchup against the high-scoring Islanders on Tuesday.

Lundqvist turned away 33 of 35 shots Tuesday in a 3-2 overtime win over the Senators.

Henrik certainly didn't look bothered by the mild hand injury he suffered Sunday. The winning ways continue for the Rangers and their star netminder, who's now won three straight and 14 of his last 16 starts.

"It's a little sore, but it's fine," Lundqvist said Monday with regard to his hand. "It's not a big deal at all."
