Goalie Start
Lundqvist will start Thursday vs. the Islanders.
Lundqvist allowed five goals on 33 shots in the Rangers’ 5-4 overtime loss to Pittsburgh on Tuesday. Despite losing three in a row and five of his first six starts, look for Lundqvist to start again tonight vs. the Islanders. King Henrik has struggled in the early going, posting a 3.23 GAA and .902 SV% so far this season.

Goalie Start
Pavelec will start Saturday vs. the Devils.
Pavelec allowed three goals on 24 shots after replacing Henrik Lundqvist in the Rangers’ loss in Toronto last Saturday. Tonight he will make his first start as a Ranger and it will come against a Devils team who are coming off of their first loss last night. Pavelec will be a risky fantasy option whenever he’s between the pipes.

Goalie Start
Lundqvist will start Friday in Columbus.
Lundqvist allowed two goals on 22 shots in the Rangers’ loss to the Blues on Tuesday. After a rough outing in Toronto, Lundqvist has settled back in, stopping 54 of the last 56 shots (.964 SV%) that he has faced. He may have a tough time keeping things rolling as he faced a talented Blue Jackets team that he struggled against last year—King Henrik was 1-2-0 with a 4.44 GAA and .853 SV% in four starts vs. CBJ.

Goalie Start
Lundqvist will start Tuesday vs. St. Louis.
Lundqvist stopped all 34 shots that he faced in the Rangers’ 2-0 shutout win over Montreal on Sunday. Lundqvist wasn’t originally expected to start but got the nod because he was yanked in Toronto on Saturday. The shutout was big for King Henrik, who struggled in his first two outings. Tonight he faces an undefeated Blues team on the tail-end of a back-to-back.

Call up / Send down
The Rangers have sent Filip Chytil to Hartford (AHL).
Chytil averaged just 6:20 TOI in his first two NHL games and served as a healthy scratch vs. the Canadiens on Sunday. The 18-year-old will head to Hartford to work on his game—Adam Cracknell will take his spot on the roster after being claimed off of waivers from Dallas.

Waiver Move
The Rangers have claimed Adam Cracknell off of waivers from the Stars.
Cracknell played 8:35 TOI in the Stars’ second game of the season and was placed on waivers shortly after. He’ll join the Rangers where he will be in a similar role of depth forward. He had 10 goals and six assists (16 points) in 69 games with Dallas a season ago.

Goalie Start
Lundqvist will start Saturday in Toronto.
Lundqvist allowed three goals on 25 shots in the Rangers’ opening night loss to the Avalanche. The Rangers were the better of the two teams but Semyon Varlamov out-duelled Lundqvist to earn the win. Things won’t get easier for Lundqvist tonight as he goes up against one of the best young teams in the NHL in Toronto.

Goalie Start
Lundqvist will start the Rangers season opener vs. the Avalanche.
Lundqvist has won at least 30 games in each of his 11 (full) NHL seasons but he struggled to a 2.74 GAA and .910 SV% last season—his worst season to date. Entering 2017-18, Lundqvist will have less competition for starts with Antti Raanta in Arizona and Ondrej Pavelec as his backup. Regardless, the aging veteran doesn’t look like a top-5 fantasy netminder anymore but he is a solid low-end No.1 option with an excellent matchup tonight.
