And forward Rick Nash shouldn't be far behind.
Vigneault provided the updates before the Rangers game at Buffalo on Tuesday, and after Lundqvist and Nash practiced on their own in New York.
Nash is now listed as day-to-day, but Vigneault wasn't sure whether he'll be ready to play this weekend. Nash has been out since suffering a bone bruise at Carolina on Jan. 22.
Defenseman Dylan McIlrath will miss a few weeks after he hurt his right kneecap Sunday.
