For New York Rangers goaltender, Henrik Lundqvist, the news that he will have to miss three weeks came of shock to him. Since, starting with the team in the 2005-6 season, he’s been an asset to the Rangers.

INDIANAPOLIS — The San Antonio Spurs‘ huge fourth-quarter rally helped Gregg Popovich reach the 1,000-win milestone Monday night.

Marco Belinelli‘s baseline jumper with 2.1 seconds left capped San Antonio’s 95-93 victory at Indiana.
