Lundqvist (neck) is not practicing Friday, Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.

Lundqvist is considered day-to-day, and he may not travel with the Rangers for Saturday's game in Nashville. With New York also scheduled to face the Stars on Sunday, Cam Talbot may end up starting one or two games this weekend.

Lundqvist (neck) may not accompany the Rangers for the team's next game Saturday against the Predators, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

Lundqvist remains day-to-day with his neck injury, but head coach Alain Vigneault acknowledged that he may not be healthy enough to play in the Rangers' next game. If Lundqvist does indeed sit out, Cam Talbot -- who picked up the win Wednesday -- would get another start in his place.

The Rangers are labeling Lundqvist as day-to-day with a neck injury.

Lundqvist first suffered the injury after taking a puck to throat during last Saturday's win over the Hurricanes. He ended up playing Monday against the Panthers, stopping 33 of 36 shots in the victory, but appears to be dealing with some late-arriving soreness with his neck. More information on his condition should be provided again in the coming days, but his status looks to be in question for the Rangers' back-to-back weekend set.

Coach Alain Vigneault said Lundqvist is nursing an injury related to his throat and won't be available for Wednesday's game against the Bruins, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.

Vigneault had said a day earlier that Lundqvist would make the start, but it appears that an injury turned up after he was evaluated by the team's medical staff. The Rangers will continue to investigate Lundqvist's condition in order to determine the extent of the injury, but he'll retain a day-to-day label for now. Look for Cam Talbot to make the start in goal Wednesday versus the Bruins.

Lundqvist will start Wednesday's game against the Bruins, Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.

The start will be Lundqvist's eighth in a row, and there was never really any question that he'd be handling this one. With the Rangers facing a back-to-back Saturday and Sunday, Lundqvist will likely start just one of the two games.

Lundqvist made 33 saves on 36 shots in Monday's 6-3 win over the Panthers.

Two days after a scare when he took a puck to the throat, Lundqvist was back in action with another impressive performance to gather win number 25 of the season. The King is once again an elite option in net for fantasy owners, and boasts impressive numbers with a 2.25 GAA and .922 save percentage.

Lundqvist will start in net against the Panthers on Monday.

Lundqvist took a shot off the throat in his last outing Saturday, but stayed in the game and managed to pick up the victory, setting aside 31 of the 32 shots he faced against the Hurricanes. While he won't look for a repeat of the throat save any time soon, he will look to record a second straight win against the Panthers on Monday.

Lundqvist survived a second-period scare and stopped 31 of 32 shots in Saturday's win over the Hurricanes.

It was a scary scene at Madison Square Garden 3:02 into the second period, as Lundqvist stopped a shot with his throat. The 30-year-old fell to the ice, clutching at his neck as he struggled to breathe. Lundqvist stayed in though, picking up his first win in three games. While he's picked up a couple recent loss, Lundqvist has been playing lights out, managing just four losses in his last 19 appearances. He's among the league's top-10 netminders this season with .922 save percentage and 2.23 GAA, making him a must-start every game.

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.
