Rangers at Bruins: Projected starting goalies
Keith Kinkaid (0-1-0, 2.21 GAA, .912 SV%) vs. Jaroslav Halak (6-2-2, 1.88 GAA, .927 SV%, 2 SO)
Kinkaid will make his second start and fourth appearance overall for the Blueshirts. He came on in relief last time out in place of the ineffective Alexandar Georgiev and he stopped all 13 shots he faced in 34-plus minutes of action in Thursday’s 4-0 setback in the series opener.
Halak will get the starting nod after blanking the Rangers in the front end of the back-to-back. The 35-year-old Slovakian backstop has been on fire since flipping the calendar from February to March, going 2-0-1 with a 0.65 GAA and .977 SV% in three starts. He also blanked the Rangers back on Feb. 12 at MSG, making 21 saves in a 1-0 shutout win.
