New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist will not play in Wednesday's game against the Boston Bruins due to a neck injury, the team announced. He will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis.

Lundqvist was injured last Saturday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes when he was hit in the throat by a puck shot from Hurricanes forward Brad Malone.

The 32-year-old, three-time All-Star has a 25-11-3 record with a 2.25 goals against average and .922 save percentage this season for New York, which is tied for sixth in the Eastern Conference with 62 points.
