    Looks really polished actually, very efficient in his movement.

    Yeah he’s been excellent whenever he has to make a quick flurry of saves. Moves around in the crease real well and makes those situations look easy.

    Man what a beast. The more shots he faces the better he is. This has happened in the AHL too where’s he had like 40 shots against and 0-1 goal against.

    Perhaps he’s got a shot at the backup role next year?

    Solid numbers after 3 games on a tanking team with a terrible defence

    37 shots against, 2 allowed
    .930 in 3 games
    He’s only 22 as well, goalies don’t hit their prime until the later 20s. I think he has a solid chance at being a starter
    33 saves in 37 the game before and in his first game he had 38 saves out of 40 shots

    Happy to see him do well. Finnish goaltending coaching still one of the best in the world. :)

    Goaltenders with his experience level in NA hockey should be getting shelled with all those shots against. He’s been amazing.

    I don't know.

    I would say that, among all positions, goalies should have the easiest transition.

    There are some differences in angles and traffic in front of the net, but there shouldn't be any difference in technique.

    I agree but he’s jumped for the Liiga to the AHL to the NHL in a short span and only gotten better. That’s rare. Facing as many shots as he has, he should have a save % under .900 right now.

    His second win of the season with 41 saves giving him a .932 save percentage. Decent.

    Only 22 as well, I doubt 99% of people know this kids name, we (Rangers) have the best goalie pipeline in the NHL imo

    Shestyorkin
    Georgiev
    Huska (who’s really underrated)

    AV has confirmed Georgiev will start his 2nd game in a row against the Pens tomorrow night, crazy part about it is that Lundqvist has been good lately. Georgiev against the Pens offense should be interesting though he did stop 13 of 14 against Tampa’s offense

    You forgot Mazanec, who was playing really well in Hartford before he got hurt. He turns 27 in July. I wouldn't count him out of winning the backup spot next year.

    Mazanec is meh. I don’t mind giving him a shot but I like Georgiev better and him playing in the NHL and getting accustomed to it will help with his development. Let him get a good amount of starts next year as well

    Faces 40 shots against PIT - saves 37 and Rangers end up winning.

    Save % at .930 after 5 games now

    Dominant performance by him against the Pens and I think Pens fans will agree with that
    His 2nd start in a row, 37 saves on 40 shots including stopping Malkin on a penalty shot with 11 seconds to go, clutch save
    Numerous huge saves

    Edit- looks like I was just beat to it

    How crazy would it be if G grabs onto the goalie spot and Shestorkin can't knock him out of it?

    Throws the team on his back once again. AV couldn't get an easier job, just toss Georgiev in goal.

    Anything can happen. Age is soo close, less than 2 months apart.

    I’d be really shocked considering I didn’t think Georgiev would be anything more than a decent AHLer. Didn’t really impress me preseason but he’s taking his chance and running with it, Shesty will be better imo but it’s great to see both doing amazing

    Shestyorkin, but probably not going to happen.

    They are Div 2B/Div 3 team. Relegated from Div 2B in 2016, lost in Div 3 final last year 10-4 to Luxembourg.
