A few eyebrows were raised this morning in New York when Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist wasn’t on the ice for the team’s optional game-day skate.

According to NHL.com’s Dave Lozo, Lundqvist has skipped these skates in the past, but this was the first time it’s happened in the playoffs.

Not to worry though, Rangers fans – coach John Tortorella says Lundqvist is “just dandy” and will play tonight against the Capitals.

In other Blueshirts injury news, forwards Brandon Dubinsky (not dandy) and Mats Zuccarello (not dandy) will miss Game 7.

    I thought he was being sarcastic. By the way, Caps fans, Mr. Ovi shouldn’t even be playing, due to a despicable (yet not surprising) display of star-player-fanboyism by the NHL. I’m not even a Rangers fan.
