After taking a hard elbow to the head in the second period of Tuesday’s 3-2 win over the Devils, the Rangers’ cornerstone goaltender Henrik Lundqvist seems to be OK.

“He’s fine, he’s fine,” coach John Tortorella said after Wednesday’s optional practice, shaking his head and dismissing any threat of serious injury. Lundqvist was not one of the 14 players to partake in practice, meaning Thursday's morning skate before their Garden match against the Panthers will most likely be mandatory.
