Georgiev surrendered three goals on 28 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Avalanche on Wednesday.

Georgiev slipped to 17-14-2 with a 3.04 GAA and a .910 save percentage in 34 appearances. The 24-year-old goalie will likely be used sparingly as rookie Igor Shesterkin seems to have a grip on the starting job at this point.

He has Mika Zibanejad (five goals in Thursday's contest) to thank for that.

Georgiev will get the starting nod in Tuesday's home game versus the Blues, Colin Stephenson of Newsday reports.
Igor Shesterkin (ribs) could be back sooner than expected, but Georgiev will continue to handle the workload for now.

After winning two straight games, Georgiev fell back to earth, allowing his most goals since he got torched for six by the Oilers on New Year's Eve.
