Shesterkin (undisclosed) will start Game 3 vs. the Hurricanes.
Shesterkin was surprisingly "unfit to play" in Games 1 and 2 but will make his playoffs debut in an elimination game on Tuesday. Shesterkin was lights out after being recalled from the AHL in January. The rookie went 10-2-0 with a 2.52 GAA and .932 SV% in 12 starts and will need to bring that game tonight if the Rangers are going to keep their season alive.
Lemieux is expected to draw into the Rangers lineup in Game 3.
Lemieux served his two-game suspension during Game 1 and 2 but is eligible to play in a must-win for the Rangers on Tuesday. Lemieux, who had 18 points (6G / 12A) in 59 games, is expected to replace Steven Fogarty in the lineup.

Fogarty will draw into the Rangers lineup for Game 2.
With Jesper Fast out, Fogarty gets the call for Game 2. Expect Julien Gauthier to move up into the top-9, opening up a spot for Fogarty on the fourth line. The 27-year-old had no points in seven regular-season games.
Lundqvist led the Rangers onto the ice for warmups in Game 2.
Lundqvist gave up a goal on the first shot that he faced in Game 1 but settled in, stopping 34 of 37 shots in a 3-2 loss. He was a surprise starter with Igor Shesterkin deemed "unfit to play" and that will be the case again in Game 2. Lundqvist has now lost his last three playoff starts dating back to 2017, giving up 11 goals on 99 shots (.889 SV%).

Fast (undisclosed) will not play in Game 2 on Monday.
Fast was hurt on his first shift of the series while absorbing a hit from Hurricanes defenseman and former teammate Brady Skjei. Fast never returned to Game 1 and will not be available for Game 2. Look for Steven Fogarty to take his place in the lineup but for Kaapo Kakko to move up into the top-6 with Artemi Panarin and Ryan Strome.
DeAngelo (undisclosed) will play in Game 1 vs. the Hurricanes.

Lundqvist led the Rangers onto the ice for warmups.
Many were expecting to see Igor Shesterkin in Game 1 but he was deemed "unfit to play" so the veteran Lundqvist will get Game 1 vs. the Hurricanes. Lundqvist had a ton off success against the Hurricanes this season, going 3-0 while stopping 125 of 132 shots (.947 SV%). In his last playoff appearance (2017), King Henri was 6-6 while posting a 2.25 GAA and .927 SV% in 12 games.

DeAngelo (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Game 1.
DeAngelo missed Friday's practice and head coach David Quinn has listed him as a game-time decision for Saturday's series opener. If DeAngelo can't play, look for Adam Fox or Jacob Trouba to move to the top power-play unit.

The Rangers have signed Morgan Barron to a three-year, entry-level contract.
The Rangers have signed Tyler Wall to an entry-level contract.
Wall was selected in the sixth-round of the 2016 draft. The 22-year-old netminder finished his senior season at UMass-Lowell at 18-8-6 with a 2.10 GAA and .931 SV%. After a terrific collegiate career, Wall joins the Rangers, where he is likely headed to the AHL for the foreseeable future.
The Rangers signed Patrick Khodorenko to an entry-level contract.
Khodorenko was an undrafted free agent and finished his senior season at Michigan State University, where he led the team in goals (16) and points (33) in 36 games. Khodorenko's contract begins in 2020-21, and he will join the Hartford Wolf Pack (AHL) immediately on an Amateur Try-Out.
The Rangers signed Justin Richards to an entry-level contract.
Richards is an undrafted free agent centre, who had 14 goals and 11 assists (25 points) in 34 games in his junior year at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Richards will likely return to University for his senior season and join Hartford (AHL) when he turns pro.
The Rangers signed Austin Rueschhoff to an entry-level contract.
Rueschhoff was an undrafted free agent right winger, who was third on Western Michigan University with 26 points (12G / 14A) in 36 games. Rueschhoff will likely head back to University for his senior season before turning pro.
The Rangers signed Matthew Robertson to a three-year, entry-level contract.
The Rangers selected Robertson in the second-round (No. 49 overall) in 2019 and he finished the 2019-20 campaign as the highest-scoring defenseman on the Edmonton Oil Kings. Robertson had 13 goals and 34 assists (47 points) in 60 WHL games.
The Rangers signed K'Andre Miller to a three-year entry-level contract on March 13th.
Miller was the No.22 overall pic in 2018 and wrapped up his second season at the University of Wisconsin with 18 points (7G / 11A) in 36 games. He started the college season on team suspension, which the Wisconsin State Journal reported was because of academic woes, and he had a disappointing showing in the World Junior Championships, where he had two assists in five games. He'll likely report to Hartford (AHL) if the NHL season resumes or for the start of the 2021 season.
Georgiev will start in Colorado on Wednesday.
Chytil (lower-body) will likely miss Wednesday's game in Colorado.
Chytil left Tuesday's game in Dallas after playing 5:32 TOI and did not return. With Steven Fogarty being recalled from the AHL this morning, it suggests that he will replace Chytil tonight in Colorado.
Shesterkin will start against the Stars on Tuesday.
Shesterkin was yanked after allowing five goals on 23 shots in the Rangers loss to the Devils on Saturday. It was a disastrous return to the crease for Shesterkin, who had his seven-game winning streak snapped in the process. Tonight he faces a Stars team that is on a five-game losing streak (0-3-2) while scoring just 1.40 goals per game.
