Kakko (illness) is expected to play on Wednesday.
Kakko missed the last games with an illness but will play Wednesday vs. the Capitals. Kakko was starting to heat up before falling ill, scoring three goals in his last two games and five in his last seven.
Kakko (illness) will be a game-time decision on Saturday.
Kakko was a late-scratch in Tampa Bay on Thursday but could play Saturday in Florida. Kakko's return to the lineup would be a welcome sight for the Rangers because the rookie has heated up, scoring five goals in his last seven games.
The Rangers have signed Kaapo Kakko to a three-year, entry-level contract.
