Canadiens' last-gasp effort falls short as Rangers draw even in series

Share

"They wanted to compete, wanted to battle and wanted the puck on their sticks". The Rangers had scored a sum total of four goals through their six-game home playoff losing streak.

Shea Weber says Alex Radulov hasn't changed much since they were teammates back in Nashville.

Even with Buchnevich in the lineup (who contributed two hits), the Rangers maintained the physical style they adopted throughout this series, outhitting the Habs 43-25.

Canadiens goaltender Carey Price made 20 saves. But with the Rangers desperate for offense, Vigneault could opt for talent over grit. "We've gotta focus on one game and get that next one". "You have to give that team credit, they played well tonight".

For the first three games we talked about how well the Canadiens' top pair had been playing - about how well they had shut down Chris Kreider, about how they drove the Canadiens comeback in Game 2, about how they chewed up 3 period minutes while defending the lead in Game 3. The Habs were already 0-2 on the power play for the night but did find their game and applied some pressure, highlighted by a quickly released shot by Lekhonen in the slot and a nice save by Lundqvist on a point shot in traffic.

Rick Nash's tie-breaking goal early in the second period was the game-winner while Jesper Fast also scored for NY.

He forechecked hard, stole the puck in New York's zone and dumped it in deep with 2:30 left. "We played well enough to win. I felt like we had a few more chances, but in the end it's about finding a way to win". The Rangers opened the scoring at 11:39 when Jesper Fast slipped the puck under Price. Radulov earned his fourth assist of the series on the play.

So this series heads back to Montreal for Thursday night's Game 5 tied at two games apiece after the Rangers won Game 4, 2-1. I'm not one to complain about the officiating, by my word, the Canadiens practically assaulted Brendan Smith in the third period, and were never called once for a penalty. I thought we managed the puck better tonight. "I didn't really think at the time that was going to be the difference". The One Where Tomas Plekanec Scores With 17.3 Seconds Left In The Third Period - or 29 more than Price.

Nash restored the lead with his second goal of the series at 4:28 of the second period.

"We had to", said Rick Nash, who scored the game victor at the 4:28 mark of the second period. NY has the offense to beat Price if they focus on their offensive play and chase his weaknesses.

But Julien said the Canadiens can't take anything for granted.

The Canadiens, who had an opportunity to take the stranglehold, strayed too far from the path. The Rangers are 0 for 12 on the power play in the series. "We have to give more at home, in the playoffs, or we aren't going to win". Even though Zuccarello scored a goal, his play adversely affected the rest of his team. "But you know it's one game at a time and [I'm] looking to get better".

Jack Johnson and Josh Anderson also scored for the Blue Jackets, who were able to outlast the Penguins when they pushed back hard in the second and third periods and then got a short-handed goal from Jake Guenztel with 27 seconds left in the game.

The Rangers looked like a completely different team than the one that blew a two-goal lead in Game 2 and were outclassed throughout Game 3.
