Georgiev turned aside 31 of 33 shots but didn't record a decision in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Bruins.
The 25-year-old left the ice midway through the first period to be checked out for a concussion with the score 1-0 for Boston, and while he was in the locker room Igor Shesterkin allowed the eventual winning goal. Georgiev then returned to start the second period and gave up the B's third tally, before the fourth was scored into an empty net. He hasn't been saddled with a regulation loss since Jan. 26, but on the season, Georgiev's 2.79 GAA and .907 save percentage are merely adequate.
Georgiev (head) returned for the second period of Sunday's game versus the Bruins, Rick Carpiniello of The Athletic reports.
Georgiev missed the final 13:19 of the first period while he was likely checked for a concussion. The 25-year-old was cleared, and he was back in the crease for the start of the second period. Igor Shesterkin allowed one goal during his brief relief stint.
Georgiev left in the first period of Sunday's game versus the Bruins after suffering an apparent head injury, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.
Bruins forward Nick Ritchie landed on Georgiev's head early in the game. Georgiev received a cut above his eye, and there may be concerns that he also suffered a concussion. In turn, Georgiev left 6:41 into the first period after allowing a goal to Charlie Coyle. Igor Shesterkin replaced him in net.
Georgiev will defend the blue paint during Sunday's home game versus the Bruins.
Georgiev was fantastic in in his last start Friday against Boston, stopping 31 of 33 shots en route to a comfy 6-2 win. He'll attempt to secure his fourth victory of the season in a rematch with the same Bruins club, who will undoubtedly be hungry to snap its two-game losing streak.
Georgiev stopped 31 shots in Friday's 6-2 win over the Bruins.
Boston did make it 2-1 early in the second period, but Georgiev didn't let the B's get any closer, and the Rangers' physical play eventually allowed them to pull away. The 25-year-old netminder has taken a back seat to Igor Shesterkin in February, but Georgiev hasn't lost in regulation in his last four starts and sports a 2.81 GAA and a .901 save percentage on the season.
Georgiev will defend the blue paint during Friday's home game versus the Bruins, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.
Georgiev was decent in his last start last Thursday against the Flyers, stopping 20 of 22 shots en route to a 3-2 win. The 25-year-old netminder will attempt to secure his third victory of the season in a tough home matchup with a Boston team that's 6-2-2 on the road this year.
Georgiev stopped 20 of 22 shots and two of three shootout attempts in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over Philadelphia.
Georgiev was victimized by a pair of tough-luck goals, as defenseman Adam Fox knocked the puck into his own net with his skate in the opening minute, then Philadelphia's Joel Farabee managed to push Georgiev's pad back and jab a rebound just over the goal line with a little over a minute remaining in regulation. Outside of those two plays, the Rangers played a solid defensive game against a Flyers team that hadn't played in 11 days and gave Georgiev two goals of support in the shootout to help the 25-year-old notch his second win of the season. Igor Shesterkin has outplayed Georgiev in New York's net thus far, but Georgiev could work his way back into an even timeshare if he's able to build on this solid outing.
Georgiev will defend the blue paint during Thursday's road game versus Philadelphia.
Georgiev was a little shaky in his last start Feb. 10 against the Bruins, surrendering three goals on 32 shots en route to a 3-2 overtime loss. The 25-year-old backstop will attempt to snap his four-game losing streak in a road matchup with a Flyers team that will be without three of its top forwards in Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek and Travis Konecny due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols.
Georgiev allowed three goals on 32 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Bruins on Wednesday.
Georgiev did well to battle against the Bruins, but an overtime breakaway by Brad Marchand denied the Bulgarian netminder a win. The 25-year-old Georgiev slipped to 1-2-2 through five appearances this season. He has a 3.21 GAA and an .891 save percentage so far. Georgiev will likely be on the short end of a tandem with Igor Shesterkin for the bulk of the 2020-21 campaign.
Georgiev will guard the cage against the Bruins at home Wednesday, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.
Georgiev will make his first appearance in the crease since his altercation with Anthony DeAngelo following the club's 5-4 loss to Pittsburgh on Jan. 30. The Bulgarian netminder has struggled this season, as he is sporting a 3.27 GAA and .886 save percentage along with a 1-2-1 record in four outings.
Georgiev made 33 saves in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Penguins.
Georgiev and the Rangers were in chase mode for much of the night, tying the game on three occasions but only finding one relatively short-lived lead. Sidney Crosby's goal from the high slot midway through overtime handed Georgiev his third loss in a row, during which time the 24-year-old has allowed 12 goals on 82 shots (.854 save percentage). Expect the Rangers to turn to Igor Shesterkin for the rematch Monday.
Georgiev will patrol the crease during Saturday's home game versus the Penguins, Rick Carpiniello of The Athletic reports.
Georgiev has struggled recently, suffering back-to-back losses to the Devils and the Sabres while posting an ugly 4.30 GAA and .841 save percentage. The 24-year-old backstop will try to get back on track in a home matchup with a Pittsburgh team that just dropped back-to-back games against the Bruins.
Georgiev stopped 21 of 24 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Buffalo.
Georgiev gave up power-play goals to Dylan Cozens and Jack Eichel, with a Tobias Rieder breakaway goal just after the expiration of a Rangers power play sandwiched in between. He didn't allow a goal in the final 32 minutes after Eichel's go-ahead tally, but neither did Sabres goalie Linus Ullmark. Georgiev's Jan. 16 shutout of the Islanders represents the Rangers' lone win through six games, but he's expected to cede starting duties to Igor Shesterkin for Thursday's rematch with the Sabres.
Georgiev will man the crease Tuesday in Buffalo.
Georgiev watched Igor Shesterkin start both legs of the team's two-game set in Pittsburgh, but the team went 0-1-1 and Shesterkin gave up a pair of soft third-period goals Sunday, so Georgiev will get the nod for his third start of the year. He'll face a Sabres team that has netted 17 goals through six games en route to a 2-3-1 record.
Georgiev stopped 16 of 20 shots before being replaced by Igor Shesterkin to begin the third period of Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Devils.
After posting a shutout in the Rangers' last game Saturday, Georgiev got another turn in the crease but was much less effective. The team will likely continue to give both netminders plenty of work until one of them seizes the starting job, but look for Shesterkin to get the next start against the Penguins on Friday.
Georgiev will start Tuesday's game against the Devils, Rick Carpiniello of The Athletic reports.
Igor Shesterkin struggled against the Islanders on Opening Night, while Georgiev shut them out two nights later, so Georgiev will get the nod for New York's third game of the season. The 24-year-old netminder was viewed as the 1B option in New York's net heading into the season, but Georgiev could work his way into a full timeshare if not take the starting job outright should he continue his hot start.
Georgiev made 23 saves in a 5-0 win over the Islanders on Saturday night.
The Rangers played a strong game in all three zones, rarely making a mistake in their own end. Given this strong performance (and Igor Shesterkin's opening night speed wobble), Georgiev clearly deserves New York's next game. The Rangers host the Devils on Tuesday night.
Georgiev will get the start in goal in Saturday's home game versus the Islanders.
Georgiev was decent last season, posting a 17-14-2 record with two shutouts while registering a .910 save percentage through 34 appearances. The Rangers' No. 1 netminder Igor Shesterkin just surrendered four goals on 33 shots in a 4-0 loss to the Isles on Thursday, so Georgiev will hope to fare better in Saturday's rematch.
Georgiev's visa issues have been resolved and he is expected to travel to New York soon, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.
Georgiev will have to quarantine for 14 days before he can get on the ice with his teammates, so he will likely miss the first few days of training camp. The delay could see Keith Kinkaid make a strong push for the backup job behind Igor Shesterkin, though Georgiev should probably still be considered the favorite to serve as the No. 2 in the Big Apple.
Georgiev has yet to travel to New York for the upcoming season while he awaits his work visa, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.
If the league is able to finalize an early-January start to training camp, there may not be enough time for Georgiev to complete a full 14-day quarantine before camp would begin. Still, barring any complications with his work visa, Georgiev should be able to join the team in time for the start of the 2020-21 campaign. While Igor Shesterkin will likely enter camp as the presumptive No. 1, there should be plenty of opportunities for Georgiev to challenge for an expanded role, especially if the NHL schedule includes an increased number of back-to-backs.
