NHL Playoffs: Canadiens beat Rangers 4-3 in OT

NHL Playoffs: Canadiens beat Rangers 4-3 in OT

It is their experience that will be leaned upon as the Blueshirts try to break their Garden malady, which entered Tuesday at a franchise postseason worst six-game losing streak.

Lundqvist, who now has a 1.89 goals-against average and.944 save percentage in the series, had his toughest stops occur on Brendan Gallagher and Andrew Shaw in the first, and on an Alex Galchenyuk shot in the third where the NY goaltender turned to find the puck alongside the far post.

While the Rangers continue to struggle on the power play-now 0-of-12 on the series-the penalty kill was much better than it was in Game 3, allowing zero goals in three opportunities. Pavel Buchnevich made his National Hockey League playoff debut for the Rangers and Tanner Glass was a healthy scratch.

"We had a couple of times to get the puck out and they worked hard to keep them in".

Newsday sportswriter Arthur Staple did a sidebar on how the Rangers' ability to roll four lines paid big dividends in Game 4. Instead, the Rangers merged their newfound grit with their established speed and skill game.

OILERS 1, SHARKS 0: Zack Kassian scored midway through the third period, Cam Talbot made 23 saves in his second straight shutout and Edmonton beat San Jose in Game 3 of their first-round series. D Kevin Klein was scratched after playing Game 3. The Rangers generated only 21 shots on Sunday, and their offense will need to do more in order to beat Price.

The truth is this first round series, like life, is full of grey matter.

The New York Rangers look to even the series before heading back to Montreal as the two sides meet up at MSG on Tuesday night. Zack Kassian and Connor McDavid each scored short-handed goals to help tie the series. His Corsi for percentage for Game 2 was 35.29 and his relative Corsi for percentage was minus-8.79.

Despite have two power plays, the Rangers didn't score in the first period, and they were also out-shot by the Montreal Canadiens 10-6. Zuccarello's Corsi for percentage in Game 3 was 43.48 and his relative Corsi For percentage was minus-2.60. Rather, when hitting or taking hits, his priority was to make plays. "I think our power play in the second game mimicked our 5-on-5 play".

For veteran forward Derek Stepan, it wasn't a lack of effort that was to blame. However, they did not let it overpower or distract from their game. The puck was retrieved by the Ranger forwards and the Canadiens were hemmed in their own end. They sustained puck possession. Then in the waning moments, the Canadiens just couldn't get one through, even having a Shea Weber blast hit the post with 1:18 remaining. Montreal also had good zone penetration and a number of legitimate scoring chances in high-danger areas.

NY managed to stay aggressive for most of the third period despite protecting a lead.

Well, not Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, who was too focused on the task at hand to fret over the situation.

The Canadiens had a flurry of chances after that.

Nash broke a 1-1 tie 4:28 into the second period with his second of the playoffs and 14th in 69 career Stanley Cup playoff games. They could roll four lines with goal-scoring capability that created matchup nightmares for opponents. Aided by a string of turnovers and a persistent failure to slow New York's forwards down in the neutral zone, the Rangers had a material territorial edge for nearly the entire period. Their adaptability has been a strength in this series.

Julien said it was impossible to pinpoint a key to the win because the Canadiens did so many things right.
