Carey On!

With a loss on Thursday night ending the Canadiens 5 game win streak, the Habs would look to bounce back from there loss against the New York Rangers last night. The Canadiens had won 3-1 over the Rangers on Tuesday which they played in Ranger territory. This time the Canadiens would welcome New York to Montreal.
  • First Period
    • With the first period underway, there was no real action or goal scoring opportunities by either side. Coming to the end of the last minutes of the first, the Rangers would get a partial breakaway, but Price made the easy save. For the first 20, it seemed like it would be a close match all the way till the end.
      • Montreal: 3 Shots On Goal
      • NY Rangers: 6 Shots On Goal
  • Second Period
    • Just a minute and a half into the second, Erik Cole would wrist one for his third of the season, making it 1-0 Canadiens. The Rangers would add more pressure to the Canadiens net after that goal, but Carey Price would not let anything by him. With 6 minutes left to play in the second, Galchenyuk was coming in on the rush from Eller, Eller would pass it back to Galchenyuk who dekes the defenseman putting himself right in front of Biron scoring his third of the season. With only 30 seconds left in the period, the Canadiens would be in a powerplay. The Rangers could not get the puck out of their zone, which lead Galchenyuk to capitalize, as he passed it to Eller scoring his second of the season. 3-0 Canadiens at the end of 2.
      • Montreal: 12 Shots On Goal
      • NY Rangers: 7 Shots On Goal
  • Third Period
    • The Rangers would only get a opportunity in the first 5 minutes of play in the third, 2 slap shots from the blue line is what the Canadiens would let them have. Price though, stopping both of them as he slowly counted down the last few minutes of play, looking for his second shutout of the season. The Rangers would only take another 2 shots this period, as the the Canadiens would end this game and win their seventh straight game against the Rangers. 3-0 the final.
      • Montreal: 3 Shots On Goal
      • NY Rangers: 4 Shots On Goal
With a win last night on home ice, The Canadiens have now won 6 of their last 7 games played. They face the Senators in Ottawa Monday night, the Sens have won 4 straight games, will they extend that lead to 5? Or will the Canadiens break the streak? Don't miss this one!
