Rangers' Alexandar Georgiev: Takes loss in relief outing

Georgiev allowed a goal on 20 shots in relief of Igor Shesterkin in a 7-4 loss to the Penguins in Saturday's Game 3. Georgiev's only goal allowed was to Danton Heinen off a turnover, but that was the decisive tally in the game. The Penguins also scored a pair of empty-netters with Georgiev pulled for an extra attacker. This was his first career playoff appearance, but he's unlikely to see many more with Shesterkin established as the Rangers' top option in net.

Rangers' Alexandar Georgiev: Rebounds nicely in finale

Georgiev made 34 saves in Friday's 3-2 win over the Capitals. Georgiev bounced back after a poor performance Wednesday to pick up his eighth win in his last nine starts. The Rangers intend to ride Igor Shesterkin in the playoffs, but Georgiev's strong play down the stretch should give him confidence if he's needed. Georgiev finishes the regular season with a 15-10-2 record, 2.92 GAA and .898 save percentage.

Rangers' Alexandar Georgiev: Gets nod for finale

Georgiev will start Friday's season finale against Washington, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today Sports reports. Georgiev had a seven-game winning streak snapped by the lowly Canadiens in his previous outing, but the Rangers were sitting some key contributors in that one. With something closer to a full lineup in front of him, Georgiev will look to finish the regular season on a high note against a Capitals team that will likely remain without Alex Ovechkin (upper body).

Rangers' Alexandar Georgiev: Gives up four in loss

Georgiev allowed four goals on 24 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Canadiens. Georgiev backstopped a depleted Rangers lineup with many regulars resting in preparation for the postseason, but New York still gave him a chance to win, erasing three different one-goal deficits. His personal seven-start winning streak came to an end due in large part to Jeff Petry, who scored twice against Georgiev, including the game-winner in the final minute. It wouldn't be surprising to see Georgiev back in the net for Friday's season finale against the Capitals.

Rangers' Alexandar Georgiev: Wins seventh straight start

Georgiev allowed three goals on 29 shots in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Islanders. Georgiev stretched the Rangers' shutout streak to over 200 minutes as the Rangers took a 3-0 lead into the first intermission thanks to an Andrew Copp hat trick, but Brock Nelson ended the streak 37 seconds into the second. Nelson and Josh Bailey added goals against Georgiev in the third, but the game had long since been decided by that point. Igor Shesterkin is the main man in New York's crease, but Georgiev has been excellent when called upon lately, with wins in each of his last seven starts.

Rangers' Alexandar Georgiev: Wins fifth straight start

Georgiev made 20 saves in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Devils. The 26-year-old netminder has been able to give Igor Shesterkin some valuable rest over the last few weeks, as Georgiev has won five straight starts despite posting a somewhat mediocre 2.60 GAA and .899 save percentage over that stretch. As long as he keeps getting results, expect Georgiev to see a bit more work than usual down the stretch as the Rangers to try keep Shesterkin as fresh as possible for the playoffs.

Georgiev will guard the road goal Tuesday versus the Devils, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports. Georgiev has picked up four wins in his last five outings, allowing 13 goals in that span.

Rangers nip Red Wings in OT to bail out Alexandar Georgiev

DETROIT — Rangers coach Gerard Gallant pointed out before Wednesday night’s game that non-playoff teams are still fighting for pride, and the Red Wings certainly accomplished that. But the Blueshirts overcame a particularly rough outing from goalie Alexandar Georgiev, forcing overtime behind Chris Kreider’s late game-tying power-play goal before trade-deadline acquisition and Michigan native Andrew Copp scored the game-winner 1:33 into overtime to take a 5-4 win at Little Caesars Arena. Georgiev gave up four goals on 24 shots in the win, which improved the Bulgarian netminder to 11-9-2 on the season. In admitting that it wasn’t his best start, Georgiev said...

Rangers' Alexandar Georgiev: Shaky in OT win

Georgiev made 22 saves in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Red Wings. New York jumped out to an early 1-0 lead, but Georgiev quickly allowed the Red Wings to tie it, as a routine shot bounced off his stick and into the net just before the midway point of the opening frame. The Rangers wouldn't grab another lead for the remainder of regulation, but they bailed Georgiev out by erasing a trio of one-goal deficits before Andrew Copp won it in overtime. Georgiev has won each of his last four starts, and while he was brilliant in a 44-save shutout of the Hurricanes on March 20, his teammates deserve most of the credit for the other three victories.

Rangers' Alexandar Georgiev: Nearly blows win Sunday

Georgiev turned aside 13 shots in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Sabres. The Rangers handed Georgiev a 2-0 lead before five minutes had elapsed in the first period and out-shot the Sabres 31-17 on the afternoon, but the 26-year-old goalie still somehow managed to let the game get to OT. Georgiev has won his last three starts, but aside from a shutout against Carolina it mostly hasn't been pretty, and he sports a 3.18 GAA and .883 save percentage through six appearances in March.
