It appears the New York Rangers may have to make do without their star goalie for the time being.
According to a report in the New York Daily News, Henrik Lundqvist skipped practice for the second straight day on Tuesday and is day-to-day with what the team is calling a "minor issue".
The Daily News says that Lundqvist was at the Rangers' training facility without pads before practice - apparently testing new skates - but did not participate in New York's full skate.
The Rangers are off to a tough 2-5-0 start and sit 14th in the Eastern Conference. Despite earning a shutout in one of his two victories, Lundqvist has struggled with an .890 save percentage and a goals against average of 3.45.
