Jeff Gorton said in June that he believes the Rangers have internal options, Alexander Georgiev and Martin Mazanec, to back up Henrik Lundqvist this coming season.

Gorton said this week that Georgiev looked "good" during his time with the Rangers this past season but that when it comes to the back up situation right now, they will "let it all play out." (MSG)

Current UFA goalies include Kari Lehtonen, Steve Mason, last year's back up Ondrej Pavelec, Anders Lindback and Jeff Glass.

6:07PM: Vigneault spoke about Georgiev after practice on Tuesday and said, "he has played well, like I mentioned before the game, he is a battler. I like his positioning in goal and rebound control, he will play tomorrow. He has won his last two games but at the end of the day, for us right now, it's about if we have a potential backup for Hank. Young player, we will see what he can do against a real good team tomorrow."

Will he play more the rest of the year, "there is no doubt that moving forward he will get some games. He has won his last two starts and we need to find out about this young goaltender who seems to have some good upside. We will give him a chance tomorrow against the Stanley Cup Champs. He seems mentally ready for it. We will put him in and see what he can do."

1:09PM: Alain Vigneault announced that Alexandar Georgiev will start tomorrow against the Penguins. (NYR)
