On Saturday, Rangers coach David Quinn laid out his plan to alternate goalies Igor Shesterkin and Alexandar Georgiev every other game. Two games later, Shesterkin is set to start a second straight game, Thursday against the Capitals.

What happened after Saturday night’s game — when Tony DeAngelo got into a physical altercation with Georgiev following the overtime loss — played a role in Quinn’s decision, as did Shesterkin’s performance Monday in stopping 25 of 26 shots in a 3-1 win over the Penguins.

“Just under the circumstances, Georgie’s been through a lot the last 48 hours, and maybe give him another day or two to kind of unwind a little bit and get back into the groove of things,” Quinn said Wednesday. “And Shesty played well, so we are going to play Shesty [Thursday], for a variety of reasons.”

Quinn said the plan is to play Georgiev again after Thursday’s game — the Rangers next play Monday against the Islanders — but that wasn’t set in stone.

“Listen, Georgie’s gonna play for us, for sure,” Quinn said. “I just have no idea what’s gonna happen after [Thursday] night. … If something crazy happens or Shesty does something that we feel will give us the better chance to win the next night, we’ll do that. But I don’t want to tie ourselves down to any commitment.”
