NEW YORK (AP) Ryan Strome scored in the first period, and Igor Shesterkin and Alexander Georgiev combined for a 28-save shutout as the New York Rangers beat the San Jose Sharks 1-0 Friday night for their fifth straight win.
Shesterkin had 19 saves before leaving at 5:08 of the third period after appearing to suffer a right leg injury stretching out face-down in the crease. The Russian goalie wasn't putting any weight on the leg as he was helped off the ice by the Rangers' trainer and banged the side of the runway in frustration as he departed down the tunnel.
"They are telling me it's not as bad as it looks ... minor lower-body,? Rangers coach Gerard Gallant said. "We'll see."
