If the Rangers keep putting the puck on net like they did in game 1 - this series is the Rangers in 5 games!

Like I said in the now defunct Bruins 2014 playoff thread - Price looked way better on paper then he actually played in the Bruins series and was a HUGE beneficiary of a ridiculous number of blocked shots by the Habs defensemen AND the Bruins hitting, but not getting a favorable bounce, the goal post and crossbar iron at least a dozen times in that series.

By far and away as of yet, Price ISN'T the "hottest" goalie still alive in the cup. And as we all have seen many times over, the hottest goalie is often holding the cup in June!

This I why I was glad when they got rid of Tortorella; they just did not shoot enough with him as coach.

Ranger power play could be a lot better; Lundqvist is hot.

That was a quick OT.

2-1 series lead, let's see how the Rangers respond. Tokarski won this game for MTL.

Give their goalie credit. Let's see if he can keep it up.

Tight games are a good thing; I don't want any sweeps. I want the Rangers to keep playing, not sit around for 5-6 days after a sweep.

Another tough one. Opposite result from game 3 but the same kind of game. Big win for the Rangers.

5-4 end second...Lundqvist pulled after going down 4-1, Tokarski gives it back.

Poor goaltending on both sides. Weird game, Stepan should break his jaw more often.

rough game

unfortunately, I think it's pretty obvious that the Ranger's will be without the services of Moore for the remainder of the series....equally as ugly and pointless of a hit as Prust from Montreal a couple games back.

As much as I'd love to see the Ranger's knock out Montreal in game 6, I've got a feeling this is going 7.
