Shesterkin (undisclosed) allowed three goals on 30 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Hurricanes in Game 3. Shesterkin's playoff debut was spoiled by the Hurricanes, who completed their series sweep over the Rangers. Despite the early postseason exit, Shesterkin figures to be the goalie of the future on Broadway. He posted a 10-2-0 record with a 2.52 GAA and a .932 save percentage in 12 starts during the regular season after his debut on Jan. 7 versus the Avalanche.
Shesterkin (undisclosed) will be in goal for Game 3 against the Hurricanes on Tuesday. Shesterkin will be making his first postseason appearance after missing the first two outings with an undisclosed injury. In 12 NHL games this season, the Russian netminder posted an impressive 10-2-0 record and .932 save percentage. If the Rangers can extend the series beyond Tuesday's contest, Shesterkin figures to carry the load the rest of the way with Henrik Lundqvist serving as the No. 2 option.
Shesterkin remains unfit to play against Carolina on Monday despite earlier reporters he would be in goal, Jon Lane of NHL.com reports. Shesterkin was originally thought to be the netminder of record for Monday's contest; however, that appears to not be the case with the goaltender still unavailable. Henrik Lundqvist figures to be the starting netminder for the Rangers as long as Shesterkin is on the shelf.
Shesterkin (undisclosed) will get the starting nod against Carolina on Monday, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports. Shesterkin missed Game 1 due to an undisclosed problem but will retake the crease over Henrik Lundqvist. Prior to the league going on hiatus, the 23-year-old netminder went 10-2-0 with a 2.51 GAA in 12 appearances, which no doubt factored into the team's decision to go back to him now that he is fully fit.
Shesterkin (undisclosed) partook in Sunday's practice but it's unclear if he'll be available for Monday's Game 2 against Carolina, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports. The young phenom was a surprise scratch ahead of Game 1 on Saturday, paving the way for veteran Henrik Lundqvist to start. It's probably wise to not bank on Shesterkin being available given the ambiguity surrounding his status and the fact that Game 2 has an early start time of noon ET. Expect further clarification during Monday's pregame warmup and likely not any sooner.
