Martin St. Louis will be 10-14 days with a knee injury, as reported by Larry Brooks.
Marty St. Louis to miss 10 days-two weeks per Rangers with knee injury sustained last night v Panthers…

I’m a big proponent of giving “oldness days off” to aging players when the playoffs are a certainty. St. Louis has been struggling on the ice recently, and adding in the fatigue of a potential 100+ game season if another long playoff occurs likely won’t help matters. His whole body can rest while his knee recovers.
Ken Campbell of The Hockey News reports that a source within the Rangers organization says the team is targeting March 24th for Lundqvist’s return to action. Though Steve Zipay reminds us that the Rangers have stated publicly that there is no timetable for his return.
