With this news coming on a game day, the question of the hour is whether Shesterkin was cleared to play early enough, to start in their contest against the San Jose Sharks this evening. The expected answer is that Alexandar Georgiev will get the official nod once again, but we can most likely expect to see Shesterkin return to the crease in tomorrow’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers, when the Rangers return to the east coast.
