Georgiev, Rangers hold off Predators for second straight win


  • Alexandar Georgiev made 32 saves to help the New York Rangers defeat the Nashville Predators 2-1 at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday.
  • Filip Chytil and Ryan Strome scored for the Rangers (5-5-1), who have won two consecutive games and three of four.

“It was a lot of cross plays side-to-side and a lot of screens, so I had to battle for that,” Georgiev said. “But I think the guys helped me a lot with a lot of blocked shots. They played really hard from the beginning, and it was easier to play when we were leading.”

  • Viktor Arvidsson scored and Juuse Saros made 28 saves for the Predators (8-4-2), whose point streak ended at six games (4-0-2).

“We were chasing the game,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. “I actually thought that we were probably at our best parts of the game defensively and fell down 2-0, and so [it was] kind of unfortunate the way that that happened. From there you’re pressing.

“You’ve got to give them some credit; they played good defense. Their goaltender played well. We missed some opportunities, missed some shots, hit the post a few times and just couldn’t seem to get it to fall tonight.”


  • Rangers forward Pavel Buchnevich’s point streak ended at four games. …
  • Predators forward Rocco Grimaldi played a total of one minute during two shifts in the third period.
  • The second one began at 17:03 and lasted nine seconds.
  • Nashville defenseman Dan Hamhuis played his 1,100th NHL game.
