Rangers are winning with every Alexandar Georgiev minute

The start was supposed to go to Henrik Lundqvist, but after the King came up a bit gimpy on Thursday when he was scheduled to back up Alexandar Georgiev at Columbus, coach David Quinn went back-to-back with No. 40 for Friday’s match at the Garden against the Canadiens.

“It was a great feeling to play two in a row,” Georgiev said following the Blueshirts’ 2-1 loss on Nate Thompson’s unstoppable chip-in from the right porch at 18:53 of the third period, following an unfortunate turnover on an unadvised stretch pass through the neutral zone by Ryan Lindgren.
