Henrik Lundqvist starting in goal for the Rangers

New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist will start Thursday's home-opener against the Colorado Avalanche.

What It Means:

Lundqvist made 55 starts last season, struggling to the tune of a 2.74 goals against average and .910 save percentage -- both career-worsts for the 35-year-old. He remains the team's top goaltender entering this season, but he will likely concede some work to backup Ondrej Pavelec.

numberFire's models project Lundqvist for 25.0 saves and 2.3 goals against with a 76.0% chance of scoring a win tonight. His 20.5 projected FanDuel points are the second-most on the slate while he is priced at a reasonable $8,600.
