Canadiens coach defends Pacioretty, shrugs off hit on Price

The Rangers made a slight change to their defensemen lineup in Game 4, taking Game One hero Tanner Glass out of the lineup. The Rangers won Game One and Game Four, while the Canadiens took the middle two games.

"I think having a family makes me realize it", he said then.

The Rangers scored a huge victory at home in game four and avoided falling into an unenviable 3-1 series hole heading back to Montreal and aside from evening things up at two games apiece they have retaken some momentum and will look to use their impressive road play this season to their advantage in game four.

"You can't retaliate. Nash isn't a dirty player".

Two teams that had the most road wins in the NHL Eastern Conference during the regular season will try to win a critical Game 5 on Thursday, as the Montreal Canadiens host the New York Rangers as solid home favorites.

"Two of the best goalies in the league going head-to-head", Canadiens captain Max Pacioretty said.

"It's part of the game".

"You've got to do it verbally in the playoffs", said defenseman Nathan Beaulieu. He was going hard to the net. "That's all I can say".

Pacioretty has been held down so far this series with just one point in the four games, but he has had 19 shots. The veteran left-winger has a history of slow starts in the playoffs.

He has answered those criticisms himself many times in his career, pointing out that his biggest strength is his shot, and the front of the net is the one place you're guaranteed to have your stick tied up, but it seemingly falls on deaf ears the next time a mini-slump comes around. McDonagh and Girardi have done a good job bracketing him.

Coach Claude Julien said the Russian will take part in the pre-game warm-up and, if he still feels good, he should play.

"That's how I handle things".

The "no" campaign said it faced intimidation and threats of violence, while opposition figures and journalists were jailed. Opposition CHP head Kemal Kilicdaroglu accused the electoral board of bias and of favouring the governing party.

Scoring is not consistent, and while the Canadiens need Pacioretty to score in order to win this series, he is not the sole focus here, even if he's the team's best goal scorer. "And similar to Torrey Mitchell stepping in and playing great hockey for us as well, I think all of us know that at any given time every single guy on this roster can be playing".

In reality, however, it's Game 5.

After finally breaking through with a strong performance at home, the New York Rangers have their sights set on maintaining that effort where they've been more comfortable all season long: on the road. First-line players Kreider and Derek Stepan have yet to score. The over/under total for the game is listed at 4.5 goals.

Note: Montreal defenceman Alexei Emelin is moving closer to a return after missing four with an undisclosed injury.

It didn't help that Game 3 was an terrible performance from the whole team, a 3-1 loss on Sunday night at the Garden when the Rangers offense completely dried up.
