5:42PM: Asked why Lundqvist is getting the start, Vigneault said "big game. First game of the year against Colorado was a big game. Tonight is a big game Monday against Dallas is going to be a big guy. I mentioned to Glen quite a few times that the game has changed a lot over the years. Back when he was coaching in the league they made the playoffs in October and early November. Now it's a battle, I don't think I have ever seen the league as competitive as it is this year. It should be a lot of fun and I thought Hank played well last night after missing in Pitt and decided to go back with him." (NYR)
Asked if his plan was to go with Henrik back to back, Vigneault said "it wasn't my plan not to play him in Pitt. He got sick....he's going tonight." (NYR)
5:04PM: Henrik Lundqvist will start tonight against the Devils and the Rangers will use the same lineup as last night. (NYR)
Lundqvist is starting back to back games after missing Tuesday's game against the Penguins with an illness.
