NEW YORK (AP) - Henrik Lundqvist finally found a game to play.
It won't be under the bright lights of Madison Square Garden or in front of a hostile crowd in Philadelphia. But it will be meaningful and rewarding in a unique way.
Like players and fans all across North America and the world, the New York Rangers goalie misses the NHL. Lundqvist has run the gamut of emotions as the long lockout lingers. His thirst to get back on the ice will be quenched Saturday night - however briefly - as he joins other hockey stars in giving back to people who were ravaged by Hurricane Sandy.
Lundqvist will step on the ice in storm-damaged Atlantic City, N.J., along with Rangers teammates and foes from the Flyers and other teams to join forces in lending a helping hand to those recovering from the devastation.
