Lundqvist (sore hip flexor) had started the last five games against the Penguins, with the Rangers winning four of them. Weekes was in the net when the Rangers split the first two games in November. "I've just got to take it step by step," said Lundqvist, who said he also probably won't play Saturday in Philadelphia in what looms as the game for the title. His next start, he said, would most likely be on Tuesday at home in the regular-season finale against the Ottawa Senators. Asked if that single-game tune up would be enough preparation for the playoffs, Lundqvist said, "absolutely, the main thing is to work hard in practice."
