The Rangers have assigned goalie Alex Georgiev to Hartford. This is not an unexpected move, as the Pack have games Friday and Saturday night, both of which Georgiev will play. The Rangers are off until Sunday.
This is a move for Georgiev to get playing time. The Rangers have had a lot of gaps in the schedule, meaning there is no cause for concern regarding Henrik Lundqvist’s fatigue level, even in back-to-backs. Georgiev will be back for Sunday’s game against Calgary, one we expect Hank to start.
Marek Mazanec has been recalled to fill the goalie gap in the interim.
