NFT: NY Rangers at CBJ - Georgiev in net again

JPinstripes : 2/14/2020 6:05 pm
on back to back nights as Igor is still out with the ankle injury but is closer according to DQ.

The bigger story is WTH is going on with Hank? I get the whole Igor thing, but Georgie on back to back nights in a must win game to keep their slight playoff hopes alive?

Is Georgie being showcased or Hank being pushed out or both?

TDA is out tonight and is listed as day to day and the Rangers called up Joey Keane who is having a breakout year at Hartford. Keane will wear 44 if he is active. #LGR

Hank is our 3rd best goalie right now. Nothing more that that.

Georgy was solid last night, 3rd goal a double deflection, with Skjei not moving Greenwood out, just standing there; 2nd goal a really good shot; 1st I can't recall lol

DQ has been up front about this. He's playing the GK he thinks gives the team the best chance to win, I think the players respect that. DQ is not going to Mara Henrik.

Henrik can stand by his paycheck, which he has a right to do. It is what it is, until some team wants Eli, I mean the King, in the late twilight of his career.

Agree. Hank is number 3 and DQ knows it. He is doing what it takes to win games now.
I donít know

He gave up 3 goals last night and wasnít a difference maker. Sure, some tough goals but thatís the case with lots of hanks goals too.

My guess is management is trying to push Hank out the door and get him to waive his NMC. Doubt thereís a taker out there for him though.


Great start by the way.
Lucky to be tied after 2

in the books. Fun team to watch and the future is bright. Hope they find a way to get a Kreider deal done.
Nice win

Fun to watch. Hope they can keep them together.
Big Road Win

Kreider with the game winner.

Georgiev with the great save on the breakaway.

Keep it going boys.
Swept the road trip

Put the third period on with the whole family watching - Rangers made a few more fans tonight. Great effort and fun to watch.
I don't know...Hope they find a way to a Kreider deal  
ColHowPepper : 2/14/2020 9:54 pm : link
ok, two conundrums.
Yes, MAB, he gave up 3, Igor maybe gets the 2nd, no way the 3rd, and I acknowledge the love and respect for Henrik, same for #10, but it's time to move on, and Georgy is no Geno, he's legit. If he is dealt, I hope it's better terms than they got for Talbot.

You cannot fail to see the bond between and among Zib, Kreider, and Buch, special, conundrum #2.

Can JD fashion gold from a slurry of questions?

Great win. JP, name it for arc
I don't know what they're going to get for Kreider  
Anakim : 2/14/2020 10:01 pm : link
I just know that I'm probably going to be disappointed and feel it wasn't enough
Just saw an interesting table  
SJGiant : 2/14/2020 10:21 pm : link
Associated with the Seattle expansion draft. It shows, as the roster is currently constructed, who will have an NMC and have to be protected, and who doesnít have to be protected (exempt). The latter list is what is important. (Note that I am still am studying what this list says)
Scroll down to NYRangers list. - ( New Window )
Keep Kreider, trade Trouba

???? I only watched the beginning but the write-ups I read indicated they were two tired teams making mistakes and Georgy basically 'saved' the day on the Rangers' side.

He stopped 36/37 shots with a .973 save %.

What more can you expect?

I could not disagree more forcefully. I re-watched Wild game:

- Rangers have no one, no one, who draws a clear line against opponents taking liberties vs the Rangers' skills-heavy, intimidation-light team. After Georgiev's solid save vs semi-break by Donato, he slashed Georgiev across the chest and Trouba immediately went after Donato, landed a punch or two before they went down, both sent off for roughing.
Later in the game a solid, clean center ice check vs. Brodin. Lindgren is a distant second, but the Rangers have no one on the team who commands respect vs physical shenanigans of the other team, no one.
- he is playing a solid back line. If he was overpaid--and he was--not his 'fault'.
- if you think he is such a devalued player, sure, trade him now and see what kind of return you get for him with that contract.

It's poorly thought out, Vanz.

If Rangers trade any of their d-men, it should be Skjei, way overpaid.

Agree, Jay.
As said above, re-watched the game. First goal, Georgiev was screened by Skjei, who knelt in attempt to block Donato's shot, it deflected off Skjei's leg, and fluked in. 2nd goal, a quick backhander that Georgiev maybe should have stopped, it was bang, band. 3rd goad, double deflection. Georgiev came up big in 3rd and in OT. It was a good outing.
btw, Wild disallowed a goal because Dumba interfered; it was reviewed to determine if d'Angelo pushed Dumba into Georgiev, something to that. 2nd time in two nights #77 is late, behind a defender, that results in contact with his keeper.....
