Igor Shesterkin could be back in Rangers net on Saturday

Igor Shesterkin’s return to the Rangers nets could be as soon as Saturday, coach David Quinn said on Friday.

The Russian goalie, who rapidly ascended to No. 1 status after a mid-season call-up, suffered a non-displaced rib fracture in a Brooklyn car accident on Feb. 24.

His return would be a boon to a team in the Eastern Conference wild-card hunt that scuffled to a 3-3 record without him, giving up 23 goals in that span.

The 24-year-old netminder has a 9-1 record in his brief NHL tenure, sporting a 2.23 goals-against average and .940 save percentage.
