Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Collects fourth straight win

The netminder has heated up at the right time, winning four straight starts and posting a 2.45 GAA and .914 save percentage through six appearances in March.

Shesterkin needs just one more victory to reach the 30-win threshold for the second straight year. Four of the Rangers' next five contests are against Metropolitan Division opponents, so Sherterkin will need to be on top of his game to help maintain New York's playoff spot.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Stellar in Saturday's OT win
Shesterkin turned aside 32 shots in Saturday's 2-1 overtime win over the Sabres.
Facing a Buffalo squad that ranks third in the NHL in goals per game, Shesterkin had little chance on a Jeff Skinner one-timer midway through the second period, but the netminder was brilliant down the stretch and made 14 saves in the third frame alone to send the game to OT. Shesterkin is 8-3-0 in 11 starts since the All-Star break but hasn't been playing his best hockey, posting a 3.22 GAA and .881 save percentage over that stretch, so this performance could be a sign he's reverting back into his Vezina form just in time for the Rangers' playoff push....

Shesterkin will guard the road cage Saturday in Buffalo, per Colin Stephenson of Newsday.

Shesterkin has three wins in his last four starts and is now two victories shy of his second straight 30-win campaign, but his performance has been shaky lately -- since the All-Star break, the 27-year-old netminder has a 3.45 GAA and .870 save percentage despite a 7-3-0 record....

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Starting Thursday
Shesterkin will be in the visiting crease in Montreal on Thursday, Mollie Walker of the New York Post reports.
Shesterkin dropped a 4-2 decision to Boston on Saturday, giving up four goals on 24 shots. He is 27-11-7 with a 2.67 GAA and .909 save percentage. His save percentage has to be a concern as he is just average among NHL goaltenders this season after leading in 2021-22 with a .935 mark. Shesterkin will face the Canadiens, who are fifth-worst in the NHL in scoring, averaging 2.69 goals for this season.... See More ... See Less

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Gets 27th win
Shesterkin made 25 saves in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Flyers.
The Rangers dressed only 11 forwards and five defensemen in front of Shesterkin with trade acquisition Patrick Kane yet to arrive up front and two regular blueliners unavailable. New York's depleted roster was seemingly saving its energy over the first two periods en route to a 2-1 deficit, but the Rangers carried play in the third period and overtime, leading to a second consecutive win for Shesterkin. The star netminder -- who improved to 27-10-7 -- will likely get the night off Thursday when the Rangers host the Senators, though the Madison Square Garden crowd will still have plenty to cheer about with Kane expected to make his Rangers debut....

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Starting in Philadelphia
Shesterkin will patrol the road crease during Wednesday's matchup with the Flyers, Vince Z. Mercogliano of USA Today reports.
Shesterkin was rock solid in his last start Sunday against LA, stopping 26 of 28 shots en route to a 5-2 win. He'll try to secure a second straight victory in a favorable road matchup with a struggling Philadelphia team that's lost seven of its last eight games.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Solid in win
Shesterkin stopped 26 of 28 shots in a 5-2 win over the Kings on Sunday.
It was a much-needed bounce-back performance from Shesterkin, who was pulled from his last start Saturday after allowing five goals through two periods. The 27-year-old netminder had allowed four or more goals in his previous four starts coming into Sunday's outing. Shesterkin improves to 26-10-7 with a .910 save percentage on the season....

Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Guarding goal Sunday
Shesterkin will patrol the home crease against the Kings on Sunday, Mollie Walker of the New York Post reports.
Shesterkin allowed five goals on 22 shots before being pulled after two periods in Saturday's 6-3 loss to Washington. He has a 25-10-7 record this season with a 2.67 GAA and a .909 save percentage. Los Angeles ranks 11th in the league this year with 3.30 goals per game.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Igor Shesterkin: Gets hook against Caps
Shesterkin stopped 17 of 22 shots before being replaced by Jaroslav Halak to begin the third period of Saturday's 6-3 loss to the Capitals.
The Rangers completely fell apart in the second period, allowing four unanswered goals largely due to some lackadaisical defense and one really poor line change, and Shesherkin was lifted in a desperate attempt to flip the game's momentum. While he couldn't be faulted on any of the pucks that beat him Saturday, the Rangers may be leaning too much on their all-world goalie to bail them out -- Shesterkin's given up at least four goals in four straight starts and hasn't allowed fewer than three in seven straight, leaving him with a lackluster 2.67 GAA and .909 save percentage on the season....
