Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist shares photo of puck hitting neck
Lundqvist was struck after a shot by the Hurricanes' Brad Malone in the 4-1 Carolina win in New York. Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh attempted to clear the front of the goal just after Malone took the shot, and his stick accidentally lifted up Lundqvist's mask. The puck then appeared to strike Lundqvist without any protection from his mask or neck protector.
He remained down on the ice for several minutes while being examined by trainers before remaining in the game.
On Sunday, Lundqvist appeared to be taking it all in stride with his humorous tweet.
The Rangers' next game is Monday against the Florida Panthers at Madison Square Garden.
