Igor Shesterkin turned aside 24 of 26 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Lightning on Thursday. It was Shesterkin's third straight loss, but he hasn't been the Rangers' problem. He made 49 saves in Game 3 and stopped 27 of 30 shots in Game 4. The Rangers bigger issue has been an inability to solve goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy as of late. Either way, the Rangers are now down 3-2 in the Eastern Conference Final. The series will now go to Tampa Bay on where the Rangers will have to win Saturday night in order to extend their season.
