Igor Shesterkin likely to be the starting goalie for NY Rangers

Paul J. Bereswill

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.

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.
