Lundqvist will start Saturday in Florida.

Lundqvist allowed four goals on 19 shots after replacing Alexandar Georgiev in the Rangers blow-out loss in Tampa Bay on Thursday. Dating back to the middle of October, Lundqvist has gone 3-2-1 with an ugly 3.45 GAA and .910 SV%. It doesn't get any easier in Florida, where the Panthers are averaging 3.71 goals per game.

Georgiev will start Thursday in Tampa Bay.

Georgiev got back in the crease on Tuesday and stopped 30 of 32 shots in the Rangers overtime win over the Penguins. Georgiev has won three of his last four with a 2.48 GAA and .920 SV% but draws a terrible road matchup in Tampa Bay--the Lightning are 2-1-1 while scoring 3.00 goals per game in their four home games.

Zibanejad (upper-body) will miss at least three more games.

Zibanejad will not play Tuesday vs. the Penguins and will not travel to Florida, so the earliest he could return is next Wednesday vs. the Capitals. The Rangers have for 4-1-1 in the first six games without Zibanejad and Filip Chytil has four goals on 12 shots since being called up to replace Zibanejad.

Georgiev will start Tuesday vs. the Penguins.

Georgiev surrendered six goals on 30 shots in the Rangers loss to the Senators on October 4th. Henrik Lundqvist started the last three games but Georgiev will make his seventh appearance on Tuesday night. The 23-year-old is 1-2-1 with a 3.60 GAA and .887 SV% at Madison Square Garden this season and catches a break with Sidney Crosby, Patric Hornqvist and Kris Letang out of the Penguins lineup.

Lundqvist will start Thursday in Carolina.

Lundqvist stopped 35 of 36 shots in the Rangers win over the Red Wings last night. It was his first start since October 27th, so he should be better equipped to start on back-to-back nights than most netminders. Still, a road matchup vs. the Hurricanes is as bad as it gets right now, so you can leave Lundqvist on your bench tonight.

McKegg will slot back into the Rangers lineup on Wednesday.

McKegg has been a healthy scratch for the last three games but will replace Lias Andersson on Wednesday. An easy matchup vs. the Red Wings will allow the Rangers to play some players who haven't been playing lately. McKegg has no points in five games this season.

Staal will be back in the Rangers lineup on Wednesday.

Staal was a healthy scratch for the last three games but will replace Ryan Lindgren in the lineup on Wednesday. Staal, who has a career-high of just 29 points (2010-11), doesn't bring any offence to the table at this point in his career, collecting just one goal in his first nine games of the 2019-20 season.

Zibanejad (upper-body) will not play Monday; possible for Wednesday's game vs. the Red Wings.

Zibanejad will miss his third straight game with an upper-body injury on Monday but is "making progress," according to head coach David Quinn. "He had another good day today," Quinn told reporters. "He's still day-to-day" and "we'll see" when asked about a potential return on Wednesday. The Rangers have played well without Zibanejad, thanks to new-found chemistry between Artemi Panarin and Ryan Strome and the impressive play from Filip Chytil, who was recalled from Hartford (AHL).

Georgiev will start Monday vs. the Senators.

Georgiev stopped 32 of 33 shots in the Rangers 2-1 win in Nashville on Saturday. Georgiev has been great lately, winning back-to-back starts while posting a .968 SV% and that has earned him a third-straight start on Monday. He is 1-1-1 with a 2.57 GAA and. 921 SV% at Madison Square Garden and will face an Ottawa team that is 3-8-1 while averaging 2.58 goals per game (25th in the NHL).

Zibanejad (neck) will not play on Saturday.

The Rangers will stick with the same lineup on Saturday, which means Zibanejad will miss his second straight game. Rangers' head coach David Quinn announced that Zibanejad's injury is in the "neck area." Filip Chytil played very well in Zibanejad's absence, so expect them to make sure he's 100 percent before re-inserting him into the lineup in a November game.

Georgiev will start Saturday in Nashville.

Georgiev allowed one goal on 30 shots in the Rangers win over the Lightning on Tuesday. It was a terrific outing for the young netminder, who had a pretty solid month of October, going 2-2-1 with a 2.56 GAA and .924 SV%. As well as he has played, he'll be in tough on Saturday. Nashville is 6-1-2 on home ice and leads the NHL in goal-scoring (4.08 GF/gm).
