What A Night For Alexandar Georgiev

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

This is becoming a ritual for the Rangers.

When Henrik Lundqvist turned 36 last March 2, the King faced 51 shots and stopped 50 of them in the Rangers’ 3-1 victory in Calgary.

“I tried to have a special birthday,” said Georgiev, at his best early in making rapid-fire close-in stops on John Tavares and Auston Matthews on Toronto’s first power play. “I tried not to concentrate on the birthday wishes because I had an important game in front of me.

“I’m very happy it ended the way it ended.”
