Henrik Lundqvist allowed three goals on 38 shots in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Islanders.

King Henrik gave up two more goals in shootout. Lundqvist has now dropped four consecutive games (0-2-2). The Rangers goalie has allowed eight goals in his last two outings, which is less than ideal for his fantasy owners. He has a 1-3-2 record with a 3.15 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage this season. His better days are behind him, so he's more of a number two goalie in most fantasy leagues.

Mats Zuccarello found the back of the net in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Islanders.

The Rangers found themselves down 3-1 in the third period, but they were able to tie the game thanks to markers by Zuccarello and Kevin Hayes. Zuccarello added another goal in the shootout, but it wasn't enough to give his team the win. The winger now has two goals and five assists in eight games this season. David Desharnais also scored for the Rangers in this one.

Paul Carey will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the New York Islanders.

This will be Carey's third straight game in the press box. He has no goals, no points and a plus-1 rating in five contests this season. Nick Holden and Steven Kampfer will also watch the game from press box.

Henrik Lundqvist will get the start in Thursday's game against the Islanders.

Lundqvist has dropped each of his last three decisions. He has a 1-3-1 record with a 3.23 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage this season.

Ryan McDonagh didn't take part in Wednesday's practice.

McDonagh is still expected to play on Thursday, so this isn't a major development. However, in the unlikely event that he missed Thursday's morning skate as well then this will be a more serious matter.

Michael Grabner found the back of the net in the Rangers' 5-4 overtime loss to Pittsburgh on Tuesday.

It was Grabner's first goal and second point in seven contests this season. He managed to score 27 goals last season, but he's not a safe bet to finish close to that mark again in 2017-18.

The New York Rangers are enduring one of the worst starts in their franchise's history.

With a 5-4 overtime loss to Pittsburgh Tuesday night, the Rangers are now 1-5-1 this season. That makes them just the second team in franchise history to collect less than four points through seven contests. The last time the Rangers had such a slump was in 1959-60 and they were en route to a 17-38-15 campaign. That's not to say that history will repeat itself, but the Rangers need to stop the bleeding. They'll get another chance to do so against the Islanders on Thursday.

Henrik Lundqvist allowed five goals on 33 shots as the New York Rangers fell to the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-4 in overtime on Tuesday night.

Lundqvist was beaten by Sidney Crosby with less than a minute to go in regulation and by Evgeni Malkin less than a minute into overtime in the high-scoring affair. He now falls to a disappointing 1-3-1 on the season with a 3.23 goals-against average and a .902 save percentage. The loss is his third straight and other than his lone victory over Montreal, the Swedish goaltender has been anything but consistent.
Oct 17 - 10:36 PM

J.T. Miller scored a goal and added two assists in his team's 5-4 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.

Miller's second period goal came on the power play, where he saw more than three-and-a-half minutes of ice time with the man advantage. It was his second of the season and he now has seven points in seven games on the year. The 24 year-old has improved his point totals in every season of his career so far, which is good news for fantasy owners, seeing as he had 22 goals and 56 points last year.
Oct 17 - 10:30 PM

Nick Holden will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Holden and Steven Kampfer will serve as the extra defensemen for this game. Holden has no points and a minus-1 rating in four games. Paul Carey will also watch the game from the press box tonight. None of these three players have any fantasy value.
Oct 17 - 6:46 PM

Henrik Lundqvist will be between the pipes for Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh.

Lundqvist comes into this game having lost back-to-back games. He has a 1-3-0 record with a 2.82 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage this season. He isn't a terrific fantasy option tonight.

Jesper Fast argued that he didn't return from his hip surgery early because of the Rangers' cold start.

Fast made his season debut on Saturday after the Rangers began the season 1-4-0. They lost again on Saturday, but Fast was active with seven hits. "Of course you want to help the team, but I felt good the last two weeks, just needed to get back to 100 percent to play games," Fast said. "That was the decision we made." He was originally projected to return in late October, so the decision to use him on Saturday did come as something of a surprise. Still, his performance on Saturday was encouraging and he wouldn't be the first player who was able to return ahead of schedule.

The New York Rangers are still looking for a defense partner for Ryan McDonagh.

The Rangers were hoping that Kevin Shattenkirk would work out but thus far McDonagh has played with Shattenkirk, Marc Staal, Nick Holden and Tony DeAngelo to no avail. McDonagh had a great partner for years in Dan Girardi but he is no longer a Ranger. The Rangers are off to a 1-5 start and are in big trouble in the early going.

Jesper Fast had seven hits on Saturday.

It was the first game of the season for Fast who missed the early action as he was recovering from offseason hip surgery. With seven hits, it seems that he is 100 percent. Fast had six goals and 21 points last season. Do not expect a lot of variance this season with his scoring skills.
Oct 15 - 8:59 AM

Ondrej Pavelec made 16 saves in a losing effort as the Rangers lost 3-2 to the Devils on Saturday night.

Pavelec is trying to revive his NHL career with the New York Rangers after falling out of favor in Winnipeg. He allowed three straight goals following the Rangers' opening goal, which all but put the game out of reach for the Blueshirts.
