Description: Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist shut out the Red Wings Sunday in a 3-0 win.

Description: Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist has given up at least three goals in each of his last seven starts.

Insight: Lundqvist's undisclosed injury isn't believed to be serious, but Saturday was his second straight absence. He hasn't played well this season (2-4-0, 3.45 GAA, .890 SV%), but he's too good to continue playing at this level.

Insight: Lundqvist entered play 1-3-0 with a 4.21 GAA and an .887 SV% in his first five games, but Wednesday's start should encourage fantasy owners.
