Avalanche Concludes Trip at Rangers on Tuesday

Shesterkin gloved Ian Cole's shot with 2:18 remaining to keep the Rangers ahead 4-3, drawing chants of "Igor!" Colorado is second in the National Hockey League averaging 6.1 assists per game, led by Nathan MacKinnon with 0.9. "We kept playing, established our forecheck, we defended well".

The Rangers lost 2-1 in Vancouver on Saturday as Canucks' defenseman Tyler Myers broke a 1-1 tie in the final two minutes of the third period.

(2/2) While there was significant head contact on this play, Lindgren took a proper angle of approach, did not extend outward or upward and hit through Donskoi's core. The veteran Avalanche center added 17 penalty minutes to his team-leading total (which now stands at 77) for his actions on the play which included a two-minute minor for instigating, a five-minute major for fighting and a 10-minute game misconduct for instigating as well.

The game got chippy a minute later. He appeared to make contact with Donskoi's head and sent the forward to the ice, injured. Rangers defenceman Ryan Lindgren knocked down Colorado's Joonas Donskoi with a hard hit near the side boards. Lindgren did not return to the game after the fight due to an upper-body injury. It's no secret that Shesterkin is the Rangers' goaltender of the future but how soon will he be the goaltender of the present?
