Igor Shesterkin likely to be the starting goalie for NY Rangers
At today’s practice, Igor Shesterkin was in his own net, while Henrik Lundqvist and Alex Georgiev shared a net. This likely means that Shesterkin will be the starting goalie for the NY Rangers during the play-in round.
Looks like Lundqvist and Georgiev sharing the net at the near end. Igor by himself at the far end.

This was somewhat expected given how Shesterkin performed in his call up. However there was a valid argument for Lundqvist since he had owned the Carolina Hurricanes this season and throughout his career.
A valid assumption would be that Lundqvist will be the backup for at least the play-in round.
