NEW YORK -- New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist is targeting a return to the lineup this weekend. The Rangers play at the Boston Bruins on Saturday and at home against the Washington Capitals on Sunday.
"That's my goal, yeah," Lundqvist said Tuesday morning. "I think I need at least one more or two more skates just to work on my timing, but I feel close."
Lundqvist, who hasn't played since Feb. 2 because of a vascular injury to his neck, participated in the morning skate at Madison Square Garden prior to the game against the Los Angeles Kings (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN). It was his first full practice since he was taken out of the lineup.
