Henrik Lundqvist rarely gets a night off.

But the Rangers' goalie will have to wait at least six days between starts. The Rangers, who last played Saturday in Sweden do not play again until this Saturday, when they travel to Long Island to face the Islanders.

The seventh-year goalie has never been injured in his Rangers' career and has appeared in 70 or more games in four of the past five seasons. Last season, he started 67, after the Rangers finally signed a quality backup in Martin Biron. The thinking was Biron would be insurance in case Lundqvist got hurt, but also could help spell Lundqvist from time-to-time.
