Canadiens confident goals will come after shutout loss to Rangers in opener

Canadiens confident goals will come after shutout loss to Rangers in opener

This postseason series could be hard pressed for scoring, though, as Montreal's Carey Price and New York's Henrik Lundqvist are two of the best netminders in the league. NY has quietly pieced together another impressive season and while they haven't had the offensive flare we have seen in year's past or the goaltending prowess from Henrik Lundqvist but they have been consistent and are a tough matchup in the opening round for a Montreal side that doesn't have a ton of scoring power and might be in tough here if Carey Price can't steal his team a few games on the road. Lundqvist's form since returning from a hip injury, and for large parts of the season has been below his best, and Glass has been enemy number one for man, toiling away in the AHL for the majority of the year. The focus has to be on speed and skill, with matching Montreal's physical play being secondary. The Rangers have 10 previous participants.

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Rangers don't mind starting the Stanley Cup playoffs on the road.

The Montreal fan base, known for its long memories, will nearly certainly let Kreider know they haven't forgotten. Montreal, Boston and St. Louis are the three teams this year to do that. "And I still think the wingers can do a better job on the boards, we gave up a lot of chances by letting them walk out".

And that's precisely what Glass did in Game 1 on Wednesday.

"My game hasn't changed", Kreider said. Interestingly enough, it's Kreider who led NY in goals this season with 28 and will be a huge factor in the series once again.

"I'm sure it's going to be tight for the rest of the way. I don't have a big one-timer, I'm not scoring from distance, so I need to be a big body and get to the top of the paint and try to bang stuff home". The hits were 20 apiece through one, according to the official box score, and 53-45 for Montreal at the final horn. The Habs have been even better since coach Claude Julien took over in mid-February, surrendering an average 2.08 goals over the last 24 games.

"It's his strength", Henry said about Julien.

Fired up by 1960s pop star Ginette Reno's national anthem, the Canadiens were all over NY, but it was the Rangers who struck first 9:50 into the game on only their third shot.

Edmonton center Connor McDavid, the NHL's leading scorer in the regular season, had one assist in his playoff debut to extend his points streak to 15 games.

"But right now it really is about the team and everyone's got to bring something to the team no matter where they're playing". But instead of playing to their strengths, the very strengths that allowed them to accumulate 103 points this season, the Rangers chose to play down to the Canadiens. The Canadiens also have the luxury of Price peaking at the right time after experiencing some ups and more than a few downs during the regular season.

The crew covers all aspects of the New York Rangers versus Montreal Canadiens Matchup including offense, defense, goaltending, and special teams.

"We have to play the game beneath the dots in the offensive zone and hold onto pucks and wear them out, and find a way to get to Price", said Vesey.

Kreider, who led the Rangers with 28 goals in the regular season, expects to hear from the Canadiens fans.

Pacioretty left practice early Tuesday after an accidental high stick from Michael McCarron got under his visor but Julien said the team's medical staff were confident he will be able to play. But those teams all took advantage of scoring chances when they came, while the Canadiens didn't.
