NEW YORK -- Henrik Lundqvist is back in net for the Rangers, but that's the only lineup change they'll have for Sunday night's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets at Madison Square Garden.
Ruslan Fedotenko, out since leaving a Feb. 9 game against the Lightning due to an illegal hit from Dominic Moore, who has since been dealt to the Sharks, skated in Greenburgh, N.Y. during the day, but coach John Tortorella offered no update on his winger's status.
The Rangers have yet to disclose the injury but have said it's not a concussion. Fedotenko tried riding a bike the day after the Moore hit but didn't feel well, so the Rangers shut him down. He took part in the team's morning skate Tuesday, but was held out of the lineup for that night's game in Boston and Thursday's home contest against the Blackhawks.
The Jackets' lineup is more guesswork. Interim coach Todd Richards said Saturday following a home loss to the Blackhawks that the plan was to start Steve Mason in net. Rookie Ryan Johansen has been a healthy scratch of late, but he could possibly find himself in the lineup.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
