Things are going well with Henrik Lundqvist (Updates)

Henrik Lundqvist3/4/15 | 10:57PM: Bob McKenzie said on NBCSN AFTER the Rangers loss to the Red Wings, “Seems to be trending in the right direction, the Rangers are not saying anything other than he is constantly being evaluated but the fact of the matter is that he saw the doctor last week and there seemed to be some positive indications that the injury is healing so much so that Henrik Lundqvist, in the last 7-10, has been able to get on the ice. He hasn’t practiced with the team but the mere that he was able to get on the ice and subsequently take shots from shooters on the ice is a really encouraging thing.”
