“He’s been our best player ever since he put on the Rangers jersey,” Rangers forward Chris Kreider said of Shesterkin. "We’ve been incredibly lucky to have him. ... He gives us a chance to win every night.” New York Rangers, Rangers, Panthers, Stanley Cup Finals


“There’s a disappointment that sets in. We are dealing with that right now,” Rangers coach Peter Laviolette said. "Nobody was expecting to be on this end of it. We were expecting to come here tonight, win a hockey game and bring it back to (Madison Square Garden) for a Game 7. So, there’s a disappointment.”

The margin was so small; a six-game series and five of them were one-goal games. New York allowed Florida only 16 goals in the series. Problem was, the Rangers only scored 12.

It was a goalie duel and New York's Shesterkin was absurdly good — 2.25 goals-against average, .930 save percentage. But Florida's Sergei Bobrovsky matched him — 1.89 goals-against average, .921 save percentage.

“He’s been our best player ever since he put on the Rangers jersey,” Rangers forward Chris Kreider said of Shesterkin. "We’ve been incredibly lucky to have him. ... He gives us a chance to win every night.”
