    I guess. The season is over, though. My guess is they're just trying to get Pavelec a few more starts to help him get another job next season.

    This is really surprising. Two more starts aren't going to do anything for Palevec, either here or somewhere else. One bad performance and Georgiev is shipped out. This could presage an ultimate decision that he would be better served by 50 starts in Hartford rather than 25 in New York next year.

    Why not play Georgiev the majority of games!?

    B/c he could play in Hartford, why carry 3 goalies? Georgiev can play 5-6 games in Hartford whereas he would probably just play 2-3 if Lundqvist is good to go. We know Lundqvist has a lot of pride and isnt going to shut himself down the last 6 games. Rangers have ZERO to play for so let Pavelec play the 2-3 games that Georgiev would have played and gain some confidence going into the offseason. Georgiev has nothing left to prove, he did a solid job as Lundqvist's backup and as long as nothing drastic happens has one foot in the door as the backup for next season.

    Figure Lundqvist is playing tomorrow vs. Washington, Friday vs. TB (last home game), vs. NJ (hopefully playing sort of spoiler) and either Isles or Philly. Pavelec vs. Canes and either Isles/or Philly or both.

    I'm with you on this, but I think it's just shitty timing for a kid that's done a really good job.

    Why's it shitty? It's not a demotion. They have 2 NHL caliber goalies. There is no reason to keep 3.

    Pavelec has done nothing wrong, either. In fact, I'd say he's been pretty good considering their attention to their own end.

    Going down after getting the hook....eh, just seems like he's going down on a bad note....I guess it's no big deal at this level, but he deserved a better send off I suppose.

    As Gorton’s team prepared for Wednesday night’s second leg of a home-and-home with the Capitals in Washington, he sent rookie goalie Alexandar Georgiev back to AHL Hartford. That is where the 22-year-old likely will play out the season after an eye-opening NHL-debut run of nine starts (10 appearances) with a .918 save percentage — a number sorely adjusted after his worst performance of the bunch, giving up three goals on six shots in the opening 8:54 of Monday night’s 4-2 loss to the Capitals at the Garden.
    With starter Henrik Lundqvist set to return Wednesday, the Rangers figured it was best to send Georgiev back to the Wolf Pack. His audition, however, put the undrafted kid from Bulgaria right in the mix for the backup role next season.
    “He’s proven himself well, he’s been a good find for us, good story,” Gorton said. “I’d hate to say we made any decisions for next year, but he certainly put himself in the conversation.”
