Igor Shesterkin to start against the Devils

4:36PM: David Quinn spoke after the morning skate and said (NYR):

  • Do you need a bigger read Igor, “I think it’s important for everybody and he played well, he deserves another opportunity. That definitely weighs into it but if he didn’t play well, I wouldn’t be putting him in there to get more of an evaluation on him.”
  • On how Georgiev is handling this, “we talked a little the other day. These guys understand that we have goalies we believe in and it’s a different situation and new to all of us and we are all learning on the fly how to handle it. He will be ready when his number is called, it’s how he’s always approached it.”
  • On the plan for Libor Hajek, “he skated more today, we will probably talk after the game tonight to figure out the next step.”

11:35AM: Igor Shesterkin is slated to make his second straight start when the Rangers host the Devils tonight. (Cyrgalis)
