The Rangers will have their No. 1 goaltender back in action as they wrap up a home-and-home set with the Washington Capitals Wednesday night in D.C.
Henrik Lundqvist will be in goal tonight against the Capitals after missing the last three games following a collision last week against Columbus. He practiced on Tuesday and said he felt good and wanted to get back into game action.
With Lundqvist and Ondrej Pavelec healthy, the team assigned rookie Alexandar Georgiev to Hartford of the American Hockey League on Tuesday.
Lundqvist is the only expected lineup change, as coach Alain Vigneault deployed the same trios and pairs Tuesday at practice, which includes Lias Andersson and Filip Chytil. Andersson scored his first NHL goal in his first NHL game on Monday, while Chytil picked up his first point in three.
