Canadiens, Penguins, Blues all win

New York Rangers right wing Michael Grabner scores the first goal against Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price during first-period Game 2 NHL Stanley Cup first-round playoff hockey game action Friday

Broken stick, they tie it with a broken stick in front so obviously some more luck there.

In that stretch, dating back to Game 2 of the 2015 Eastern Conference Final, New York has been outscored by an aggregate 20-4 at Madison Square Garden.

Later in the period, the Rangers would once again turn the puck over, and Alexander Radulov would make them pay with the Canadiens' third goal of the game. It's 1-1 and now we go into their building and it's going to be hard. With one of the best goaltenders in the league keeping the Blueshirts close, anything can happen.

After creating an offensive rush, play returned to the Rangers' defensive zone.

It will be up to the Canadiens to come up with an answer in Game 2 on Friday night at Bell Centre, or risk heading to NY down two games in the best-of-seven series. The Rangers promised to bounce back from a Game 2 loss in which they were less than 18 seconds from winning, then laid an Easter egg instead.

The Montreal Canadiens did not start their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series on a high note, as they were blanked 2-0 by the New York Rangers at the Bell Centre on Wednesday. NY goaltender Henrik Lundqvist stopped 54 shots. "They were doing a good job on the forecheck, making it hard on us and keeping a lot of pucks on the wall".

Thanks to their ability to play solid defense, score timely goals and get saves in key situations, NY is heading back home with a 1-1 split. "We are maybe looking to extend our plays a little bit too much and it's costing us scoring opportunities".

The Rangers got off to a better start than in the series opener, controlling the play and getting the game's first three shots.

But they could never shake off the Canadiens on Sunday night. He played 18:15 and had four recorded giveaways while on the third pair with rookie Brady Skjei on Sunday.

"We're definitely fighting it a bit, to say the least", NY captain Ryan McDonagh said. We played with a lot of confidence.

According to the NHL, Plekanec's tally was the latest playoff game-tying goal in Canadiens history, beating a Jacques Lemaire goal in 1975 with 24 seconds remaining.

The roof almost blew off the building when Radulov won a battle down low and threw a hope pass to the middle of the slot that ended up flying off Plekanec's stick and into the top corner of Lundqvist's net.

The Rangers fall for the second straight game and now trail the Canadiens heading into Game 4.


Frustration began to creep into the Minnesota Wild's play during a 2-1 loss to St. Louis at home in Game 2, on the heels of a 2-1 defeat in overtime in Game 1, when they outshot the Blues 52-26. The Canadiens are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in NY, 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and the under is 14-6-6 in the last 26 meetings.

This is how the playoffs are. "Not too much phases him". "All those little things will add up to us hoping to have more success".

By the third period, though, Vigneault dropped Mika Zibanejad from centering Mats Zuccarello and Jimmy Vesey to playing between fourth-line wings Michael Grabner and Tanner Glass. In Game 2, Montreal outshot NY 58-38, including 18-9 in the third period and 13-8 in the overtime.

Good news for NY though is that two of their more talented middle-line forwards got on the score sheet Friday night.
