If Igor Shesterkin was fit to play, it seems he was going to start for the Rangers today, but I'm glad to see Henrik Lundqvist get this chance.
I don't know how his story is going to end, but having this chance to play is better than the way it was headed for him in March.
In a last-minute twist, Igor Shesterkin was declared "unfit to play" and Henrik Lundqvist was announced as the #NYR starter for Game 1.
How's that for drama? https://t.co/iHj8Arz2nk
