New York Rangers goaltender Igor Shesterkin made a mark at both ends of the ice in Saturday's Game 6 against Carolina, stopping 37 pucks and recording two assists in a 5-2 win. He became only the fifth goalie in NHL history to register multiple helpers in a playoff game. The MVP candidate notched his first assist on a Mika Zibanejad power-play goal in the first period and also had a hand on Filip Chytil's second goal of the night in the second period. Shesterkin made a bit of franchise history as well, picking up his sixth consecutive home win in the playoffs, surpassing Mike Richter, Steve Baker, Ed Giacomin and Dave Kerr. He's now 7-5 for this year's postseason with a 2.75 goals-against average and a .926 save percentage.
