Home ice no advantage for Rangers in Game 3 vs. Canadiens

Home ice no advantage for Rangers in Game 3 vs. Canadiens

In an attempt to shake up an anemic offense that had a poor display in Game 3, Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault shook up his lines and introduced rookie Pavel Buchnevich to the team, putting him on the first line alongside Chris Kreider and Mika Zibanejad. With Lundqvist's broken stick shoveled to the corner, Jeff Petry's wrister from the right circle went through traffic and in for a 1-0 lead on the first Habs shot on goal at 4:05.

Lundqvist said it was an odd feeling when Weber launched his rocket. "We felt like we had to play our best to get back to Montreal with a tie series, and that's exciting". I couldn't believe I didn't get my arm up. It's a good shot. "We need more - it's as simple as that". The Rangers opened the scoring at 11:39 when Jesper Fast slipped the puck under Price. While the scoresheet reflects a Rangers' 2-0 win in Game 1, the Rangers only got one goal past Carey Price.

NY will need to return to the dominating speed game they played in game one and two of the series. "We had good jump and good energy, and really played a hard game". We had to chip pucks out. We've got lots of training staff, and we know to prepare for the next game.

"I still think we could be a little better in the third period", Nash said.

The Rangers likely won't make the most of the opportunity if they play the way they did in Game 3, when they said they worked hard enough but were guilty of not working smart enough.

In the first period, after Rangers defenseman Nick Holden pinched to take a shot, the puck deflected behind the net and both J.T. Miller and Andrei Markov went to retrieve it. Miller hit Markov behind the net; Artturi Lehkonen recovered the puck, and was subsequently hit by the Rangers' Derek Stepan.

The Rangers, who gave up the tying goal with 18 seconds left in the third period of Game 2 before losing in overtime, stopped Montreal in the final minutes in this one. Lindberg and the Rangers maintained offensive pressure from Grabner's initial shift with 7:23 remaining in the second period, until Price covered the puck 17 seconds later.

On the bright side for the Penguins (and fans of former Canes players), Ron Hainsey scored a goal in the playoffs. Henrik Lundqvist made 54 saves and was stellar in defeat. They also failed to capitalize on at least two breakaways and one partial attempt.

"The team that just worries about the next shot is the team that normally ends up on top", Pacioretty said. I like the Canadiens on the road again today. He argues decision-making occurs in a loop and by processing that loop faster than your opponent, you can effectively cut them off and get ahead.

All four games this series have come down to which goaltender has been a little bit better.

Canadian-based teams were 0-5 in the postseason before last night's wins by Montreal and Edmonton. When Nash's penalty expired, NY extended their futility while up a man, aided by a clearing attempt and some proficient stick work in the lanes by Jordie Benn.

NOTES: The Canadiens scratched D Nikita Nesterov for the second straight game. Draisaitl may hear something from the Department of Player Safety which could limit his participation in Game 5. But Kuhnhackl found the back of the net on a rebound less than two minutes later to make it 4-3 before Jenner put Columbus back up by two. Pavel Buchnevich made his National Hockey League playoff debut for the Rangers and Tanner Glass was a healthy scratch.

The Rangers showed some much-needed Moxie Tuesday night.
