Henrik Lundqvist G NYR 11 Days
Lundqvist let in five goals on 30 shots in a 5-1 defeat against the Lightning on Monday.
That's now three straight losses for Lundqvist, though he had played well in the previous two. He's just 7-5-3 this year, but he's still been solid in net and should pick up a fair share of wins, so fantasy owners should continue rolling him.

Lundqvist made 29 saves in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Penguins on Saturday night.
He was named the game's third star in a confusing affair that saw the league overturn a shootout goal that would have won the game for the Rangers. Both teams had retreated to the dressing room, thinking the game was over, when they were called back out to the ice to continue the shootout. He remains one of the league's elite twinetenders and should be an auto-roll when he's in the blue paint.

Lundqvist will be in the net Saturday against the Penguins, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Lundqvist notched his third shutout of the season earlier this week against the Penguins, but it seems doubtful that he'll be able to completely suppress the league's top-scoring offense for a second straight game. Nevertheless, given Lundqvist's standing as one of the game's best goalies, his fantasy owners are probably going to want to roll him Saturday even if the ratios he delivers aren't quite as shiny this time around.

Lundqvist is expected to start between the pipes Saturday against the Penguins, Andre Gross of The Record reports.
Lundqvist will be making his fourth straight start if he indeed gets the call Saturday as expected. He stopped 26 of the 29 shots he faced in Thursday's contest, though he was beaten in the shootout. Saturday should provide him with another opportunity to get back on track.

Lundqvist stopped 26 of 29 shots through overtime and gave up two tallies on three shootout tries in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Avs.
A tough one for Lundqvist, who's usually aces in the shootout. He'll look to get back in the win column Saturday against a Penguins team that he and the Rangers beat 5-0 on Tuesday.

Lundqvist will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against the Avalanche, Newsday's Steve Zipay reports.
Lundqvist has dominated since the calendar turned to November, posting a 1.22 GAA and .958 SV% in four starts. He will look to stay hot Thursday against a struggling Colorado team that has won just one of its last six games.

Lundqvist put a stop to all 33 shots sent his way by the league's best offense in Tuesday's 5-0 rout of the Penguins.
The Rangers jumped out early with three goals in a dominant first period, and Lundqvist shut the door completely on Sidney Crosby and Co., who entered the night averaging 4.15 goals per game. It certainly helped that the Rangers' defense limited Crosby to just one shot on goal, although Evgeni Malkin fired six. It's Lundqvist's third shutout of the year -- all within his last eight starts -- but his play has still been rather uneven in the early going, which has to be at least partly due to the Rangers' injuries on defense. However, the blue line is getting healthier and Lundqvist is highly likely to keep pushing his save mark back toward the .920-plus range, where he's finished each of the last five seasons.

Lundqvist will be in the net Tuesday against the Penguins, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Lundqvist has been unable to build much momentum in goal recently, as he's won three and lost three games over his last six starts. While it's possible that Lundqvist will rebound from Sunday's loss to the Oilers with a victory over the Penguins, don't expect him to escape with solid ratios in this one. The Penguins are averaging a league-leading 4.15 goals per game and have cashed in on 37.5 percent of their power-play opportunities.

Lundqvist made 30 saves on Sunday, but lost to the Oilers 3-1.
Lundqvist was solid in net in the loss, surrendering just two goals before the Oilers added one with an empty net. After a rough opening few games, including consecutive six goal games, Lundqvist has been more consistent between the pipes of late though there's still room for improvement given his capabilities.

Coach Alain Vigneault confirmed after Friday's practice that Lundqvist will make his next start Sunday against the Oilers, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
The Rangers will split the weekend back-to-back starts between their two goalies, as Cam Talbot gets the nod Friday in Toronto while Lundqvist mans the net for the home tilt with the Oilers. Lundqvist doesn't have particularly impressive career numbers against the Oilers (1-1-2, 2.53 GAA), but with Edmonton riding a four-game losing streak to drop them into last place in the Western Conference, it would be surprising if King Henrik didn't claim a victory.
