Georgiev stopped 39 of 41 shots in regulation and overtime, and one of two shootout attempts, in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.

In what was likely his final start of the season, Georgiev did just about everything he could to play spoiler for the Jackets' playoff chances, but he couldn't contain Artemi Panarin -- who beat him in the third period, and for the only tally in the shootout. The young netminder has posted a strong 2.29 GAA and .937 save percentage in nine outings since the beginning of March, and the heir to King Henrik Lundqvist's throne could get his coronation as the new No. 1 for the Blueshirts as soon as next season.
