Rangers lose Igor Shesterkin to non-contact injury

A scary moment for the Rangers and prized goalie Igor Shesterkin, who suffered a non-contact injury late in tonight’s win in New Jersey. Shesterkin moved from his left to his right, went down to a half split for a shot attempt that went high over the net. But it looks like on his way up, something happened.

Shesterkin looks like he hurt himself trying to pop back up. There is no contact, and the puck did not hit him. When that happens, it’s scary. He could not put weight on his right leg. That makes you think it’s his knee. I play enough fantasy football to know that non-contact injuries and no weight on his leg means bad news.

A long term Igor Shesterkin injury would just be the capper on a horrible season for the Rangers, at least in terms of luck. They have none at all this season.

    Brendan Smith on 3 seperate occasions, had players blow right by him for scoring chances, Palmieri 2X & Woods 1X.
    A couple of positives, Shesterkin had a great game, Kreider & LaFren.
    Obviously Shesterkin injury is very concerning.

  • Problem with Smith is he is not anticipating the speed and loses contact with the wing. I would love to see if Schneider would have done better.

  • I am hoping the goalie has a groin strain knee injury will mean see you next year. I guess kincade comes up.

  • I dont think this has been a bad season at all. Miller is quietly the best rookie defenseman in the league. And the rangers passing has become amazing. Now all they need to do is get better zone penetration in order to provide more offense as relying on turnovers in the nuetral zone seems to be their way to score.
