Henrik Lundqvist will get the nod on Wednesday.
That being said, Lundqvist is tentatively projected to get a game off on Friday or Saturday.

That hurts Lundqvist's fantasy value a bit, but it should help the Rangers when the playoffs start.

Rangers coach Alain Vigneault felt the second goal Henrik Lundqvist allowed on Tuesday should have been a "routine save."
That goal made a difference in the Rangers' 3-2 defeat. Lundqvist voiced his agreement with Vigneault's assessment. "Sometimes, I feel like you can hide behind a team, say, 'We, we, we.' But at some point you have to be honest with yourself and that should go for all of us," Lundqvist added. He has a 2.51 GAA and .915 save percentage in 14 games this season.
