Lundqvist has missed the last seven games due to a hip injury.

This season the Rangers have used Antti Raanta, Lundqvist's back-up quite a bit. Raanta is quite possibly the future for the Rangers, and has gone 2-2-2 in this streak of games he has played. The Rangers know that if an emergency arises that they can put Lundqvist in the net for all three games.

<![CDATA[Aaron Ekblad Returns to Ice]]>The Florida Panthers will have defenseman Aaron Ekblad back on the ice for Tuesday night's game against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Ekblad suffered a concussion back on March 11th that has kept him out of the last four games the Panthers played. Ekblad has been on the ice over the past week leading up to today and has felt more comfortable each day. Missing time is tough for most players, and Ekblad is no different. He is glad the injury is in his rear view mirror and that he can take the ice and help his team.

<![CDATA[Rick Porcello Named Starter for Opening Day]]>The Boston Red Sox already know how they want to start the season, and who they want to start it. Rick Porcello has been named the starting pitcher for opening day, which for the Red Sox is April 3rd at Fenway.

Porcello is the reigning Cy Young winner for the American League, and according to manager John Farrell has always been the number one choice to start the season. This will be the first time in Porcello's career that he is the starting pitcher on opening day, and even his fellow teammates are backing the decision. David Price and Chris Sale fully back Porcello opening the season, and think he is deserving given the leader he has become for the team.

<![CDATA[Bears sign Kendall Wright]]>The Chicago Bears signed Kendall Wright, formally of the Tennessee Titans. The one-year deal is worth up to $4 million.

The Bears are trying their best to retool their receivers for new quarterback Mike Glennon. Losing Alshon Jefferey was a significant hit to their receivers and the signing of free agents Kendall Wright and Markus Wheaton, who signed on Friday, are attempts to fill that void.

<![CDATA[Terrelle Pryor, a great fit for the Redskins]]>The Washington Redskins have signed Terrelle Pryor to a one year deal worth 6 million.

The amount of interest in Pryor seemed to be surprisingly low, but he could easily be the best free-agent WR acquisition of the entire off-season. He had a very good year considering the quarterback situation that existed in Cleveland.

<![CDATA[The Case For Bilal Powell as a Top 15 RB]]>Once the Jets’ season was essentially over, when they were 3-9, they decided to give backup running back Bilal Powell more carries. Obviously, they needed to change something, because whatever they were doing wasn’t working.

Powell took this chance and ran with it (Ok, ok, it’s not that funny), running for 411 yards and 2 touchdowns in the last 4 games of the season.
