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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
