New York Rangers @ Montreal Canadiens 8:00 PM NBCSN [Series: NYR 3-1]
Last Night’s Results:
Chicago Blackhawks 2 Los Angeles Kings 5 [Series: LA 3-1]
- The New York Rangers are now one win away from reaching the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time in twenty years. If you have forgotten, that is also the last time the Rangers won the Cup. New York is riding a wave of momentum into this elimination game, outscoring Montreal 10-3 in the first two games at the Bell Centre, and then splitting the two at Madison Square Garden. Both games at MSG required OT, and both winning teams won by a score of 3-2. The Rangers are familiar with the feeling of being down to your last game, as they rallied from a 3-1 deficit against the Pittsburgh Penguins in round 2. Therefore, they are not taking the Canadiens lightly with one more win to go. [NHL.com]
- The Rangers penalty kill came up big in Game 3, allowing only one goal on eight Canadiens power plays.
- The Montreal Canadiens have come back from a 3-1 series deficit only twice in their history, most recently in 2010 against the Washington Capitals. Goaltender Dustin Tokarski is expected to make his fourth start for the Canadiens. Carey Price skated yesterday in an optional practice, part of rehabbing his injured right knee.
