Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist: Could return as soon as Saturday

Lundqvist (hip) was a full participant in Monday's practice. "Physically I feel great," Lundqvist noted. "It's healed well. I feel I have the power that I need. Now it's about getting the timing right and being on top of your game."

Per the report, Lundqvist -- who suffered a strained hip on March 7 -- could return to game action as soon as Saturday against the Kings. He's been ruled out, however, for the Rangers' next two games, which paves the way for Antti Raanta to continue to fill in for Lundqvist, who is 30-17-2 with a 2.65 GAA and .913 save percentage to date.
