The Rangers have recalled goalie Alex Georgiev after his brief stint in the AHL, returning Marek Mazanec to the Pack as well. Georgiev was sent to Hartford over the weekend to get some playing time, as the schedule hasn’t been kind to the backup netminder. With large gaps between gaps, there was no need to rest Henrik Lundqvist.
It’s expected that with four games in eight days coming up –I know, it seems like a lot but it really isn’t– that Georgiev will get a game in. The schedule condenses a lot in November as well.
