RANGERS TURN TO SHESTERKIN FOR GAME THREE

The New York Rangers will turn to rookie goaltender Igor Shesterkin for their must-win game versus the Carolina Hurricanes Tuesday night, the team announced.

The Rangers, who have lost both game one and two to the Hurricanes, will go with the young Russian rather than longtime goaltender Henrik Lundqivst, who started games one and two. A big reason Lundqvist started those first two games was because Shesterkin was deemed ‘unfit to play’.



Shesterkin, 24, was called up to the Rangers in January and shortly after became the team's clear cut number one goalie. In 12 games, he put up a 10-2 record along with a 2.52 goals against average and a .932 save percentage. While he was no doubt great this season, the team's struggles in this year's postseason cannot be blamed on Lundqvist, who played solid in both game one and two. They will need to turn things around quick, as a loss in Tuesday’s game would end their season.
