Alex Georgiev to start against Boston

5:20PM: Quinn said on Tuesday (NYR):

  • On Georgiev starting tomorrow, “It was predetermined, Alex was going to play regardless of what happened with Shesty, whether we won or lost. Georgie has looked good, looks like he is dialed in and ready to go, he’s anxious to get back in there. It’s been a little while, I know he is looking forward to getting back in the net and we are looking forward to having him in the net.”

What David Quinn said after the loss to the Isles

David Quinn spoke on MSG after the Rangers loss to the Isles and said:

  • On the game, “I didn’t think we played fast enough offensively, really allowed them to stay in their structure, which they are very good at. Our PP, obviously you want to score, but you want to gain some momentum, we didn’t get much going. It’s 0-0 going to the third, we had some great chances in the third before they made it 1-0 and we just couldn’t capitalize. It was a tight game in a lot of ways, not much going on both sides of it and they took advantage of their chances.”

5:03PM: Igor Shesterkin will start in net. (NYR)

2:16PM: David Quinn spoke on Monday and said (NYR):

  • Are you willing to say who is starting, “nope, let you know tonight, in warmups.” (Laughs)
  • On Libor Hajek’s first game, “I liked his game, tough situation, he hadn’t played in a long, actually he played in Europe, but, an NHL game in a long time. I liked how composed he was, I thought, not a lot of minutes, but him and Bitetto did a good job. We talk about Libor and what we think of him as a player, he needs to continue to feel the way we do about him as a player, that is the kind of gap we have to close and I think he took a good step forward the other night.”

What David Quinn said after the win over Washington

David Quinn met with the media on MSG following the Rangers win over the Caps and said:

  • On the game, “I liked a lot about our game from the get-go, I thought we were all dialed in, mentally and physically ready to go. Our PK stood tall again, Shesty had a good night, a bunch of people stepped up tonight. You are up 2-0, you want to get out of that period up 2-0 and part of the learning curve for us is still managing when you go up 2-0 how to play the game within the game. I like how hard we are defending, good sticks in the D-Zone. We played a real good team tonight and got two crucial points.”
