Shesterkin was sharper in tracking the puck. His rebound control was great after a few games that usually allowed more than usual. He moved freely.

“It was my best game since I came back,” the 26-year-old Russian said on Friday after his 38th save, a 4-0 win over Yashin. “I wouldn’t say anything better,” he said. But I think I have to play better than I do today. ”

At the end of the first half, the goalkeeper did his best on a penalty kick and defended the 2-0 lead with a few stops before breaking the glove with a shot from the top by Mikhail Sergachev. Shesterkin’s most important saves probably came in at 8:12 of the first game, just 28 seconds after Rangers took a 1-0 lead in a stoppage of Ross Colton’s one-timer pad.

“The guy has been out for a long time,” head coach Gerard Gallant said of Shesterkin. “He never played badly [the first two games back] but it was great today. That’s what you expect. “
