Montreal Canadiens @ New York Rangers 8:00 PM NBCSN [Series: NYR 3-2]

Last Night’s Results:

Los Angeles Kings 4 Chicago Blackhawks 5 (2 OT) [Series: LAK 3-2]

Noteable Noteables:

  • The New York Rangers will have to put a sloppy Game 5 behind them and refocus their efforts to clinching a trip to the Stanley Cup Final in Game 6 tonight at Madison Square Garden. Henrik Lundqvist will be especially focused on bouncing back, after being pulled midway through the second period. Lundqvist allowed four goals on 19 shots, in a very uncharacteristically weak game from the net minder.
  • If there is one positive the Rangers can take out of the 7-4 Game 5 loss, it’s that they rallied to tie the Game at four after Lundqvist was pulled. Montreal went on to score the next three goals, but there was a moment where it appeared the Rangers were back in the game.
  • Michele Therrien did not have an update yesterday on Canadiens forward Dale Weise, who left Game 5 in the third period due to a hit to the head from John Moore. Weise’s status for Game 6 is currently unknown. Moore was suspended for the remainder of the series by the Department of Player Safety.  []
