There is a storm brewing in the Eastern Conference Finals, and the New York Rangers are the driving force. After taking out Montreal Canadiens starting goaltender Carey Price the Rangers have gone on and taking the first two games of the series.
The Canadiens have some very big problems, they can’t find a way to score in Henrik Lundqvist, and it seems Rick Nash has found his scoring touch. To make matters worse Martin St. Louis is playing with raw emotion. Combine that with his top-level talent and that makes him a very dangerous player in this series.
Last night game was won by King Henrik he faced 41 shots and stopped 40 of them. For the series Lundqvist has only allowed three goals on 63 shots; if he keeps this up the Rangers will easily skate into the Stanley Cup Finals.
We are trying right now to inspire each other, and personally for me it’s a lot of fun to be out there, it’s exciting, its pressure, but it’s a chance to grab on to an opportunity,” Lundqvist said after the game. “My goal here is to leave it all out there. In the end will it be enough? We’ll see. But you don’t want to sit at the end of the year and feel like you had more to give. [Blueshirts United]
Montreal needs to find scoring, and they need to find it in game three, the way the Rangers are playing they will not suffer the same monumental collapse that the San Jose Sharks did. If the Canadiens want to make a series out of this they need someone other than P.K. Subban to put up points.
*New York Rangers in 5 games, but in the NHL Playoffs it’s hard to predict a series.
