There was no update as to the status of Antti Raanta (lower body) after Saturday's game.

Raanta was injured in the first period and did not return for the start of the second. Hopefully, there will be an update on Sunday but do not be surprised if the Rangers are forced to recall Magnus Hellberg from their AHL affiliate in Hartford. Raanta was perfect on 10 shots Saturday and is 10-4-0 with a 2.23 GAA and a .923 save percentage. He has been a must-own especially if you also have Henrik Lundqvist.
