NEW YORK -- The bagels from breakfast are still sitting out while lunch is being ordered, plenty of them untouched as the hours bleed away with no one really noticing, or caring.

Producers in one of the four edit rooms are sifting through hours upon hours of footage while wearing winter coats because for some reason that no one can figure out, the heat in that particular edit room is not working properly this morning.

So what, they say. It doesn't stop them. They grind. They always grind.

NEW YORK -- New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist would have been at risk for a life-threatening injury if he kept playing with what he called a sprained blood vessel in his throat that was detected Tuesday.

Lundqvist said Sunday he won't be re-evaluated by the doctors for at least 2-3 weeks to see how it's healing, and he can do only light cardio between now and then. He even once referenced a timetable of potentially 3-4 weeks before he is re-evaluated.

"If I would keep playing I'd run a big risk of having a stroke, and that's why you have to make sure you play this one safe because it's not a sore shoulder or elbow or something like that," Lundqvist said prior to the Rangers' game against the Dallas Stars at Madison Square Garden.

The Rangers said on Friday that Lundqvist is expected to miss at least three weeks.

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
