Coach Michel Therrien confirmed Wednesday that the 24-year-old Tokarski will start Thursday against the Rangers in New York.
Tokarski made his playoff debut Monday in place of Carey Price, who is out for the series. He had 27 saves in Game 2 in just his 11th career NHL appearance, when the Rangers won 3-1 to take a 2-0 lead.
Peter Budaj had replaced Price in the opener.
